Tune of the Day: Nocturne in D-flat major

by Frédéric Chopin, arranged for solo flute

The Nocturne in D flat major, Op. 27/2, is one of Chopin's most graceful essays in fioritura ornamentation. The opening melody will be familiar to many who nevertheless cannot identify it by name, since it has occasionally been featured in popular culture, such as in the 1977 James Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me, where it is cleverly used in conjunction with deep-sea imagery.
