Description

The Nocturne no. 1 in B flat minor, marked larghetto, features a  rhythmically free right-hand melody, something that would be characteristic of Chopin's later style.

The Nocturne no. 2, in E flat major, features a reflective and peaceful melody that recurs a number of times, becoming more ornamented with each iteration. Since its publication, it has become one of Chopin's most popular pieces, if not the most popular. Its usually recognized as a staple work in the piano repertoire of western classical music.
