interpretation of the Nocturne N6 Op. 15/3 in G minor by F. Chopin
Chopin’s Nocturne in G minor, op 15 , is a striking work that is unique to its genre when examined in the stage of Chopin’s compositional development. It was dedicated to Ferdinand Hiller, a German composer whose music is not mentioned often in modern times even though he was hailed as one of the greats in mid to late 19th century. At the time of composition of this nocturne, around 1832 - 33, Hiller was part of a generation of musicians who were around the same age as Chopin (20-25 years old). The two composers must have met in the pianist circles that were forming around in Paris and which Chopin was certainly involved in. feeling homesick and concerned because of the failed uprising in Warsaw. Musically he was trying to achieve his own unique voice as he was already exposed to the music of Hummel and Field.
