Nocturne

recorded in 2006 - performed by Jorgos

Chopin composed and published his popular Nocturne in E-flat major in 1833. This nocturne is filled with melancholy.

The main melody is heard three times during the solo piano piece. With each repetition, it is varied by more and more tones and trills. The foundation for the melodic line is provided by the spaced notes in the accompaniment.

The nocturne is reflective until it becomes passionate near the end. The melody begins softly but then ascends to a high register and is played with force, eventually reaching the loudest part of the musical work. Tension increases as the crescendo brightly moves up to the long trill. Then the excitement subsides, ending the nocturne calmly.

    sometimes prison isnt so bad when you have classical radio, a few good friends and a new guy whos too scared to not obey whatever you tell him. Mostly the part about the radio though.

  16. It so beautiful! I feel like I’m being carried away by the music!
    The playing is beautiful!
    Classical Music is amazing, so many different emotions from one piece of music!! Music like this is so refreshing, it feels like I can breathe properly! :)

  17. This hauntingly beautiful piece of music was the centerpiece of the film adaptation of the life of Eddie Duchin. It was in fact his theme song.
    Nobly and ably played by the late Carmen Cavallaro, the soundtrack to the
    movie is among my most cherished possessions. I recall fondly how my late
    father, who knew Duchin, took my mother and I to see this movie in the
    theater no less than four times.
    The “Eddie Duchin Story” is worth your look-see.

  36. My husband from which I have a child and I am separated is polish. I think the way we met and romance was well defined with this piece on music. Love Chopin, also visited with my son and husband in Poland the salt mines and when we reached the end of the tour the top part of thuis site was iluminated with millions of stars and in the background this music was palying. Exquisite moment, love, romance, creativity, history and moments that speak of Chopin.

  42. It is so nice to sit in a calm place and hear quite music ,especially,amusic of shopan ,thanks alot

  43. it’s soft and strong at he same time, sad and magic! for me the best song ever!

  44. I love this particular piece from Chopin. It takes me away to somewhere before our world got too complex and busy. I picked up the piano 7 months ago and played a water down version of Nocturne for my first recital. It wasn’t Nocturne in Eb for sure but…my audience approved. My goal is to play Nocturne in Eb

  45. I love the way you played this. But the recording runs into some static on some high notes for some reason.

  46. when i hear this it allows me to think clearly i have a great appreication for this music

  47. Whenever I’m feeling sad or in a peaceful mood this is what I like to listen to. I love classical music, these were very gifted people.
