Information about the piece

Nocturne in E-flat Major, Op. 9 No. 2 is one of the most beloved compositions by Polish-French composer and piano virtuoso Frédéric Chopin. Composed in 1832, just before the composer moved to Paris, it epitomizes both Chopin's compositional prowess and the romantic era's emotional profundity.

This piece is classical in form but progressive in harmony. Its technical aspects include:

  • It adheres to a loose ternary, or ABA, form. This means that an initial theme (A), is introduced, followed by a contrasting theme (B), before returning to the initial theme (A).
  • Notable for its lyrical, song-like melody, soaring over an increasingly intricate accompaniment.
  • The expressive depth of the piece comes from its graceful melodies and sophisticated chord progressions.The composer encourages the soloist towards a great deal of rhythmic freedom, known as rubato, particularly in the melodic line.
