Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Set amid Chopin’s ruminations in waltz-form on the idea of musical popularity, the Nocturne in E flat major, Op 9 No 2, represents the perfect companion. In this most admired of his nocturnes, we can hear distant echoes of the accompanimental patterns of the waltz, here rendered with greater subtlety, and in the service of lyrical expression.
