The second Nocturne of the group, in F sharp major, begins as a delicate arabesque with the right hand floating over a steady bass. The middle section in this case is marked doppio movimento (twice the speed), and uses a right-hand figuration similar to that of his F sharp minor Prelude. At the end, the music shimmers in a haze of F sharp major.

from notes by Angela Hewitt © 2004

Le Nocturne en fa dièse majeur s’ouvre sur une délicate arabesque à la main droite, flottant au-dessus d’une basse constante. La section centrale, marquée ici doppio movimento (deux fois plus vite), présente une figuration à la main droite identique à celle du Prélude en fa dièse mineur. À la fin, la musique scintille dans une brume de fa dièse majeur.

Français: Hypérion

Das zweite Nocturne in diesem Zyklus steht in Fis-Dur und beginnt als liebliche Arabeske, wobei die rechte Hand über einem regelmäßigen Bass umherschweift. Hier ist der Mittelteil mit Doppio movimento (doppeltes Tempo) markiert und die Figurationen der rechten Hand erinnern an diejenigen des fis-Moll Préludes. Gegen Ende schimmert die Musik in einem Fis-Dur-Nebelschleier.
