Perhaps the strings interlude used by Roy Harper; perhaps the change of the seasons; perhaps because the clocks have fallen back. I’m not sure, but I’m in the mood for some nocturnal classical. Chopin’s ‘Notturno In Mi Bemolle Maggiore Op. 9 n. 2’ is a dreamy melody that inspires the mind to wander. For example, I’ve just thought that many things sound better in Italian (and in E flat major). Frédéric Chopin wrote this piece in his early twenties. Where possible, I have included renditions by Artur Rubinstein, who was universally acknowledged as one of the great Chopin interpreters. Enjoy.
