The E major Nocturne sounds rich and expressive with its melody sung by a mezzo-soprano rather than a higher voice. In the turbulent middle section the left hand plays a melodic role as well, with the harmonic ‘stuffing’ lying in the inner voices. The return of the calmer section brings with it a good deal of resignation – perhaps what Chopin was feeling at the time.
