Nocturne No.1 in Bb minor Op 9 No 1 Chopin Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
The word "Nocturne" is French, meaning "of the night". As a musical form, it was invented by the Irishman, John Field, and later taken on board with enormous success by Chopin. It is a dreamy, slow romantic piano piece, with a graceful melody in the right hand, highly ornamented, accompanied by patterns of arpeggios in the left hand.

Chopin composed the Nocturne No.1 in B-flat minor, Op.9, No.1 (Murmures de la Sein 1) in 1830-1 when he was just 21 years old. It opens with a lovely but sadly tragic cantabile melody. It is an openly emotionally moving work that has immediate appeal. Jean Kleczynski wrote that it "exhibits a thrilling sadness, together with a novel eloquence of construction". Chopin dedicated the three nocturnes of Opus 9 to the pianist Camille Pleyel. It was said that all who heard her play, including Berlioz and Liszt, fell in love.
