I have lived with these minature masterpieces for as long as I can remember.
My father who had huge hands ; his first finger was almost the width of a white key; struggled with them for years.
Most of them were far too difficult but I often lay in bed listening to him attempting the famous E flat nocturne as I driffed off to sleep.
Dad had some old vinyl records that he played with a steel stylus that scratched away but he did not listen to the interference the music was too important for that.
The simple beauty of these pieces haunts me and often raises a nostalgic tear or two.
