The Fourth Nocturne is one of the ‘happy’ Nocturnes. It begins in a mood of quiet contentment with a theme of innocent joy, and the tolling minims in the rippling E flat minor middle section, whilst rising to a climax of romantic ardour, do not in any way disturb the gentle happiness of the piece.

from notes by Ted Perry © 1999

Le Quatrième nocturne est un nocturne «heureux». Il commence, dans une atmosphère de paisible contentement, par un thème de joie innocente, et les blanches carillonnantes de la section centrale ondoyante en mi bémol mineur atteignent à un apogée d’ardeur romantique, sans pour autant troubler le doux bonheur de la pièce.

extrait des notes rédigées par Ted Perry © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Das Vierte Nocturne ist ein „frohes“ Nachtstück. Es setzt in einer Atmosphäre stiller Zufriedenheit mit einem unschuldig freudigen Thema ein, und die wie Geläut klingenden halben Noten im leicht bewegten Mittelteil in es Moll steigern sich zwar zu einem Höhepunkt romantischer Inbrunst, stören jedoch keineswegs die sanfte Glückseligkeit dieses Stücks.
