Frederic Chopin Nocturne in B major, Op. 32, No. 1 music sheets.
The Nocturne in B major Op. 32, No. 1 is initially marked andante sostenuto and is in 4/4 meter. There are several ritardando markings throughout, followed by a tempo markings in the next measure, such as in measure 7 and 8 and in measure 17 and 18. The piece transitions to adagio in the last two measures, starting in measure 64.
The Nocturne in B major Op. 32, No. 1 is 65 measures long and, unusually, ends in the tonic minor key, B minor, although some editions (such as those by Rafael Joseffy as well as Chopin's student Carl Mikuli) and performances (such as that by Arthur Rubinstein) end with a B major chord, which has the effect of a Picardy third in the context of the minor-mode coda.
There has also been confusion over a key in the first bar of the last line: Theodor Kullak and Karl Klindworth use a G, while Julian Fontana used an F-sharp.
