Nocturne in F Minor (The Separation) was composed by Mikhail Glinka. The recording is performed by Jeremiah Jones and is 3 minutes and 57 seconds in length.

This is my first recording by Mikhail Glinka (1804-1857). Glinka studied piano with John Field and his influence can be felt in this piece. The work is a Nocturne composed for Glinka's sister, Elizaveta. She was away in St. Petersburg at the time it was composed and thus the title, "The Separation" is quite appropriate.

I recorded this piece for my daughter, who recently experience an emotional separation of her own. She suffered the reality of watching her beloved snowman melt away as the temperature went up this last week. When she came back in the house after saying her final "goodbye" I played this piece for her and told her it was a song for her departed snowman.

The recording was made at home on my studio upright. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of Glinka's "The Separation".
