This nocturne is standard in that it features an expressive right-hand melody with simple left-hand accompaniment. However, a flat seventh scale degree gives this nocturne a distinct flavor that could be contrasted with other nocturnes a student has played. Students should consider highlighting the alto voice when it appears, and take advantage of the rubato marking in the last few measures of the piece.
