The Nocturnes, Op. 27 are two solo piano pieces composed by FrÃ©dÃ©ric Chopin often regarded as two of the best pieces he ever composed. The piece was composed in 1836 and published in 1837. Both nocturnes in this opus are dedicated to Countess d'Appony. This publication marked the transition from triplets of nocturnes to contrasting pairs. Gustav Barth commented that Chopin's nocturnes are definite signs of "progress" in comparison to John Field's original nocturnes, though the improvements are "for the most part only in technique. " However, David Dubal feels that the pieces are "more aptly described as ballades in miniature. " Blair Johnson states that these two nocturnes are "two of the most powerfulâ€”and famousâ€”nocturnes [Chopin Chopin] has ever penned" and that these nocturnes are "virtually unrecognizable" to those of John Field.
