Musician's or Publisher's Notes

The nocturnes are Chopin’s most intimate and personal utterances. As the title implies, they are suggestive of some aspect of dusk, evening, twilight or the dark night and associative emotions. Op. 27 No. 2 has been called the most voluptuous of the nocturnes. The theme is presented in those parallel thirds or sixths so beloved of the Italian opera composers, and even includes examples of fioriture (decorative filigree).              Notes by Stephen Hough
