Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
