Nocturne in E-flat major, Op. 9, No. 2
I am very happy to see the ever-increasing number of subscribers to my channel. From now on, for every 20K new members I will donate 500 $ toward the development of a water well in a remote area. There are many places around the world where the lack of fresh water is still a crucial issue and even a little contribution can go a long way! Currently, the channel has 80K subscribers, so the first milestone will be at 100K. The deployement of a water well costs approximately 3500 $. Needless to say, you'll get the proof for the well developement. I hope we can build the first one by the end of the year!
Chopin composed his popular Nocturne in E-flat major, Op. 9, No. 2 when he was about twenty.
This popular nocturne is in rounded binary form (A, A, B, A, B, A) with coda, C. The A and B sections become increasingly ornamented with each recurrence. The penultimate bar utilizes considerable rhythmic freedom, indicated by the instruction, senza tempo (without tempo). Nocturne in E-flat major opens with a legato melody, mostly played piano, containing graceful upward leaps which becomes increasingly wide as the line unfolds. This melody is heard again three times during the piece. With each repetition, it is varied by ever more elaborate decorative tones and trills. The nocturne also includes a subordinate melody, which is played with rubato.
