A delightful piece, quite melancholy and almost haunting in places, with a hint of a cadenza in the middle reminiscent of the first subject in Grieg’s piano concerto (movt 1). I also think the nocturne hints at some of the despair of the slow section in the final movement of the concerto.

Anyway, you can hear me playing the nocturne in the video below:

Enjoy!
