Nocturne in G minor, Op 37 No 1

composer
1838

 
The first Nocturne of Op 37, in G minor, is very vocal, with the lament sung by the soprano in long phrases, and the ornaments becoming increasingly elaborate. Then comes a chorale in E flat major played in the lower half of the keyboard which gives it a dark colour. The lament returns, but, as he has done previously, Chopin chooses to give us a ‘tierce de Picardie’ ending in the major key.

Le premier nocturne de l’op.37, en sol mineur, très vocal, voit la lamentation chantée au soprano en de longues phrases, avec des ornements toujours plus élaborés. S’ensuit un choral en mi bémol majeur joué dans la moitié inférieure du clavier – d’où sa couleur ténébreuse. La lamentation revient mais, comme il l’a déjà fait auparavant, Chopin opte pour une «tierce de Picardie» s’achevant en majeur.

Français: Hypérion

Das erste Nocturne op. 37 in g-Moll ist ausgesprochen gesanglich angelegt: die Sopranstimme singt ein Klagelied in langen Phrasen und die Verzierungen werden immer komplizierter. Darauf folgt ein Choral in Es-Dur, der in der unteren Hälfte der Tastatur gespielt wird und daher eine recht dunkle Farbe hat. Der Klagegesang kehrt wieder, doch wie es auch schon zuvor geschehen ist, bedient sich Chopin hier einer pikardischen Terz, was das Stück in Dur enden lässt.
