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.

from notes by Jeffrey Kallberg © 2011

Le Nocturne en mi bémol majeur op. 9 no 2 accompagne à merveille les ruminations, dans la forme valse, auxquelles Chopin se livra sur la popularité musicale. Dans ce Nocturne, le plus admiré de tous, on entend de lointains échos des modèles accompagnants de la valse, rendus ici avec une subtilité accrue, au service de l’expression lyrique.

Français: Hypérion

Inmitten von Chopins Grübeleien über die Idee der musikalischen Popularität in Walzerform stellt das Nocturne in Es-Dur op. 9 Nr. 2 das ideale Begleitstück dar. In diesem Werk, dem bewundertsten seiner Nocturnes, sind entfernte Echos der Begleitmuster des Walzers zu hören, die hier mit größerer Subtilität eingearbeitet sind und im Dienst des lyrischen Ausdrucks auftreten.
