Nocturne in E flat major, Op 9 No 2

1830/2; published in 1832; dedicated to Camille Pleyel

Chopin’s Three Nocturnes Opus 9, were written in his early Paris years 1830-31, and dedicated to the pianist Marie Pleyel (who was also the wife of the maker of Chopin’s favourite pianos). The central Nocturne in E flat is justly one of the most famous of his output, with its artlessly simple accompaniment and graceful, memorable melody.
