Nocturne in G minor, Op 37 No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
