Chopin Piano Nocturne in F-sharp major Op. 15 No. 2


  • Code:  C-7451
  • Content: 7 Elements

Composed in 1832, Frédéric Chopin’s Nocturne in F-sharp major, Op. 15, No. 2 is a technically challenging piece. The first section, Larghetto, features an intricate, elaborately ornamental melody over an even quaver bass. The second section, labeled doppio movimento (double speed), resembles a scherzo with dotted quaver-semi quaver melody, semi-quavers in a lower voice in the right hand, and large jumps in the bass. The final section is a shortened version of the first with characteristic cadenzas and elaboration, finishing with an arpeggio, falling at first, then dying away.
