However, both Field and his numerous followers did not avoid the burden of drawing room musical tradition of brillante style, sentimentalism and primitive programme music. What Field hardly began, Chopin develops in his individual style, and reaches the highest levels of artistry. It is highly possible that the shape of Chopin nocturnes was influenced by adagios and larghettos of piano concertos from the turn of the 18th century, as well as aria da capo with its contrasted middle parts and richly ornamented reprise.

Many Chopin experts emphasise that nocturnes created by the Great Lyricist are strongly influenced by Italian music. Italian accents are visible in fiorituras, rubatos and characteristic expression of arias and bel cantos. Chopin seems to base on aria da capo, where the extemporised ornamentation of reprise is further elucidated by notation Nocturne in F flat major, Op. Sometimes in reprise two previous parts are synthesised Nocturne in C minor Op.

Nocturnes of identical mood contain elements of rondo combined with variation technique in D flat major Op.

What characterises the plan is duration in particular atmosphere created by the depth and subtlety of experience, and not just-happening, present in middle parts as a complement or modification con fuoco, appassionato, agitato. Its separateness is further emphasised by numerous means of expression used. On the other hand, these are features characteristic of nocturnal idiom, especially those associated with tone colour.

This sphere is enhanced by the originality of harmonic structures and modulations in B major Op. Eventually, nocturnes also owe their expressive feature to peculiar rhythmics rhythmical imprecision and written-out rubato and meter.

Except Op. It is worth quoting Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz, who claimed that the Nocturnes unite nocturnal pondering over faithfulness and love with nocturnal meditation on homeland.

Chopin – Nokturny

Upon meeting Chopin and hearing his nocturnes in , Field is said to have described the composer as a "sickroom talent". One aspect of the nocturne that Chopin continued from Field is the use of a song-like melody in the right hand. This is one of the most if not the most important features to the nocturne as a whole. The use of the melody as vocals bestowed a greater emotional depth to the piece, drawing the listener in to a greater extent. Another technique used by Field and continued by Chopin was the more extensive use of the pedal. By using the pedal more, the music gains more emotional expression through sustained notes, giving the piece an aura of drama. One of the greatest innovations made by Chopin to the nocturne was his use of a more freely flowing rhythm, a technique based on the classical music style.
