Nocturne in D-flat major, Op. 27. No.2
- 19th Century
- based on repitition (with variation) of two themes
- 1. Both themes are lovely, arialike melodies using florid embellishments inspired by the bel canto style of Italian opera.
- 2. Accompanying chords are broken into harplike arpeggios and widely spaced in the bass and middle registers, to exploit the natural resonance of the piano.
