Nocturne No 2 in B minor
The Nocturne No 2 in B minor (1901) emulates the grander Chopin nocturnes, especially in it its contrasting ‘prayerful’ section, whose arpeggiated chords recall those of Chopin’s C minor Nocturne Op 48 No 1. This section carries further markings such as quasi fiati (woodwind) and quasi organo, before it develops into ever more luxuriant decorations.
