Nocturne No.16 in Eb Op 55 No 2 Chopin Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
The Nocturne No.16 in E-flat, Op.55, No.2 is strikingly beautiful and inspired. It was composed in 1843, quite late in Chopin's life. According to David Dubal, "One has only to compare the Field-like E-flat Nocturne of Op.9, No.2, to understand how far Chopin had traveled in pianistic layout and harmonic plenitude based on a personal contrapuntal approach, and a rarefication of melody." Chopin's nineteen Nocturnes are his most introspective and genuinely subjective works. Irish composer John Field (1782-1837) may get the credit for inventing the piano Nocturne in the form of a lyrical, expressive melody supported by harmony, but it is Chopin who raised the form to its highest level. Most have a basic ternary (A B A) form, however, Chopin develops the basic melody with his own magical kind of ornamentation. Sometimes the melodies become very elaborate with cadenza-like flourishes, while undulating broken figures in the bass give support. The mood is generally meditative, in keeping with the title.
