The unusual thing about the Nocturne in B major is that the ending, with its sinister, threatening drumbeats and rather angry recitative, comes in complete contrast to the serene beginning. But it also transforms what could be a rather uneventful work into something much more meaningful.

from notes by Angela Hewitt © 2004

Le Nocturne en si majeur est insolite en ce que sa conclusion, aux battements de tambour sinistres, menaçants, et au récitatif plutôt furieux, contraste totalement avec son ouverture sereine, transformant ce qui pourrait être une œuvre assez terne en quelque chose de bien plus profond.

extrait des notes rédigées par Angela Hewitt © 2004
Français: Hypérion

Das Ungewöhnliche an dem ersten in H-Dur ist dass der Schluss mit seinem unheimlichen, drohenden Trommelschlägen und recht zornigen Rezitativ im völligen Gegensatz zu dem heiteren Anfang steht. Dabei wird jedoch auch ein zunächst fast belangloses Werk in etwas viel Aussagekräftigeres verwandelt.
