Nocturne in E flat major, Op 9 No 2

1830/2; published in 1832; dedicated to Camille Pleyel

Frédéric Chopin composed his three Nocturnes Op 9 between 1830 and 1832. Casals frequently played the second of these, the famous Nocturne in E flat major, as an encore in the highly idiomatic arrangement by the influencial cellist and composer David Popper, who became the leader of the Hungarian cello school while teaching at the Conservatory at Budapest.

Frédéric Chopin a composé ses trois Nocturnes, op. 9, entre 1830 et 1832. Casals a souvent joué en bis le deuxième, le célèbre Nocturne en mi bémol majeur, dans un arrangement très idiomatique de David Popper, violoncelliste et compositeur influent, qui est devenu le chef de file de l’école hongroise de violoncelle lorsqu’il enseignait au Conservatoire de Budapest.

Frédéric Chopin komponierte seine Nocturnes op. 9 zwischen 1830 und 1832. Casals spielte als Zugabe oft die Nr. 2 der beiden, das berühmte Nocturne Es-Dur, in einer überaus eigenwilligen Bearbeitung des einflussreichen Cellisten und Komponisten David Popper, der in seiner Zeit als Lehrer am Budapester Konservatorium zur führenden Figur der ungarischen Celloschule wurde.
