I've got a probably more than 60 years old nocturnes score: "Ed. Bote & G. Bock", corrected and fingered by "Charles Klindworth". The problem is that the nocturne op.72 n°1 (in B min) contain an odd ornament at the 15th and 35th bar: two lozenges side by side. This ornament is situated over the A in 15th bar, and over th A sharp in the 35th bar. Can anybody tell me what does it mean?[/img]

For some reason the image isn't showing up for me. I'm sorry but I really have no idea what your talking about. What's a lozenge? Do you mean the kind to help your throat? Just kidding.

Also I think you mean Nocturne in E Minor Wink .

Sorry, it's definitely the nocturne in E min! (I've put non picture, it's an error) In fact, I found another version where the two lozenges side by side in the 15th bar are replaced with a mordent but there is nothing in the 35th bar, neither the "two lozenge" nor a mordent! Probably should I listen carefully to the Arrau performance to get "the" "right" notes or at least a good version...

I don't like Arrau's reading of the nocturnes. His tempo is not consistent and too much rubato.

Listen to Moravec's recording even though the sound quality is not as good as that of the 1990s recording.
