The melody is given to the alto flute in this transcription of Nocturne (originally for piano solo). It has a gentle character and a lovely, flowing quality that makes it an effective concert item. The compositional style of Giovannin Sgambati blends the melodic quality of Italian music into Classical forms.

Sgambati was a great pianist, a friend and a colleague of Franz Liszt. He lived his whole life in Rome where he was an influential conductor, composer and teacher. His mother was English, daughter of the sculptor Joseph Gott.
