  • Code:  C-7455
  • Content: 5 Elements

Nocturne in E major, Op.62, No.2 is one of Frédéric Chopin's last works. The melody proceeds slowly and with stifled voice. The strength of emotion is articulated by the expression of the melody which complements the initial idea. It explodes, shattering the melody's calm passage with sudden leaps and runs before picking up the broken thread a moment later. This music sounds convulsively tense, played agitato, and like a nervous speech. The agitation soon subsides, however, giving way to the principal melody. This comes about in a wondrous and beautiful way. The melody returns with greater calm and poise than before the eruption of that inner storm.
