The Nocturne in F minor begins simply with a swinging bass, but in a quicker tempo than the C minor Nocturne. Things get almost military-sounding in the middle, but not for long; the song-like opening returns, dissolving quickly into triplets that take us to the top of the keyboard, before harp-like chords bring the piece to a close.

from notes by Angela Hewitt © 2004

Le Nocturne en fa mineur s’ouvre simplement sur une basse rythmée, mais dans un tempo plus rapide que celui du Nocturne et ut mineur. Au milieu, les choses prennent une tournure quasi militaire, mais cela ne dure pas; la mélodie revient, pour se dissoudre rapidement en triolets qui nous entraînent en haut du claiver, avant que des accords de type harpe ne viennent clore la pièce.

Das Nocturne in f-Moll beginnt einfach mit einem swingenden Bass, jedoch in einem schnelleren Tempo als das c-Moll Nocturne. Im Mittelteil wird das Ganze fast militärisch, jedoch nicht für lange; der liedhafte Anfang kehrt zurück, löst sich umgehend in Triolen auf und bewegt sich bis in die höchsten Höhen des Klaviers, bevor harfenähnliche Akkorde das Stück beenden.
