dc.description.abstractSeveral of Chopin's nocturnes contain interesting chorales. This study discusses three such works-the Nocturnes in C# Minor (without opus number), A-flat Major (Op. 32, No.2), and F Minor (Op. 55, No.1). The chorales in the Nocturnes in C# Minor and A flat Major are introductory. They contribute to the work's coherence by being present in every section of their respective nocturne in multiple ways and on multiple levels of structure. The chorales in the Nocturne in F Minor also provide motivic coherence, but they appear in the middle and at the end. This study examines the function of the chorales in these three nocturnes in light of the theories of Heinrich Schenker.en
