Nocturne in F-sharp major, Op. 15, No. 2

The challenging piece in A-B-A form in 2;4 was composed in 1832. Larghetto (mm.40), the first section, includes an intricate, and elaborately ornamental melody over an even quaver bass. The second section, doppio movimento (double speed) resembled a scherzo with dotted quaver-semi quaver melody, semiquavers in a lower voice in the right hand, and large jumps in the bass. The last and final section is a shortened version of the first (14 bars rather than 24) with characteristic cadenzas and elaboration and finishes with an arpeggio on F major falling and then dying away.
