Nocturne in F sharp major, Op 15 No 2
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The second Nocturne of the group, in F sharp major, begins as a delicate arabesque with the right hand floating over a steady bass. The middle section in this case is marked doppio movimento (twice the speed), and uses a right-hand figuration similar to that of his F sharp minor Prelude. At the end, the music shimmers in a haze of F sharp major.
