Chopin’s Nocturne (Op. 9, No. 2) is arguably one of his most well-known works, written when he was only 20 years old. It was originally composed for solo piano but this version has been arranged for two cellos. Chopin wrote a total of twenty-one Nocturnes for solo piano between 1827 and 1846 – many are considered among the finest short solo works for the piano. You can listen to the original version of the Nocturne (Op. 9, No. 2) in a breathtaking recording by Arthur Rubinstein here. In 1951, renowned Spanish cellist Gaspar Cassadó became the first to record this Nocturne on cello and was followed about thirty years later by the great Lynn Harrell who performed the work in Japan in 1989 (click here for Harrell’s recording). Both included parts have helpful suggested fingerings.


“This charming bagatelle did more for the popularity of Chopin than all his other works.”

Jan Kleczyński
