Anocturne is a piece of music inspired by, or evocative of, the night. Although the term was first used for short piano sketches by the Irish composer John Field, by far the best-known Nocturnes are those by Chopin and the best recording of them is by Arthur Rubinstein from the s, much finer than his later versions. Kazuo Ishiguro's Nocturnes are five interconnected short stories about music, failure and the passing of time, all written in the first person, with the narrator, as always in Ishiguro, only half aware of the extent of his own involvement in humiliation, disappointment and loss. Tony Gardner had always been his mother's idol, so he introduces himself and they start chatting. The guitarist ends up, memorably for him, helping Tony Gardner serenade his disaffected wife, Lindy, from the canal beneath their hotel window — unavailingly, for after 27 years, they are going to separate. Tony says he needs to make a comeback with a new wife and she is still young enough to make another marriage.
