Two Nocturnes arranged for violin and piano by Pablo de Sarasate.
Pablo de Sarasate (1844-1908), is one of the most important and most
successful violin virtuosos of the second half of the 19th century.
Apart from works of his own, Sarasate also arranged other works for his
own use, such as these two 'Nocturnes' by Frédéric Chopin. Sarasate
wanted to transfer some of the most beautiful and most tender melodies
to the violin, which he saw primarily as a vocal instrument.
