Nocturne in C minor, KKIVb/8

No 21; 1837 (possibly 1827); published in 1938; not authorized for release by Chopin; possibly by Charlotte Rothschil

Frédéric Chopin’s Nocturne in C minor was composed in 1837 when he was seventeen, though published only in 1938. It has grace and characteristic elegance, yet, naturally enough, lacks the expressive power of his mature works in this genre.

from notes by Max Harrison © 1986

Frédéric Chopin composa le Nocturne en ut mineur en 1837, à dix-sept ans – l’œuvre ne fut publiée qu’en 1938. Elle possède une certaine grâce, une élégance typique, mais ne dégage pas, bien sûr, la puissance expressive des nocturnes de la maturité de Chopin.

extrait des notes rédigées par Max Harrison © 1986
Français: Hypérion

Frédéric Chopins Nocturne in c-Moll entstand 1837, als er siebzehn Jahre alt war, wurde jedoch erst 1938 veröffentlicht. Sie ist anmutig und von typischer Eleganz, doch mangelt es ihr zwangsläufig an der Ausdruckskraft seiner reifen Werke dieser Gattung.
