Tune of the Day: Nocturne No. 21 in C minor

by Frédéric Chopin, arranged for solo Flute

Though this is listed as the last of the 21 nocturnes of Chopin, it was chronologically his 13th. For those attaching superstitious significance to that numbered position, they will not find this an unlucky piece in any sense. The only problem with this posthumous nocturne actually concerns numbering: in many editions it is not numbered at all, while some refer to it as No. 21 or No. 20a, and some other as KKIVb No. 8

Thanks to Melissa for suggesting this piece!
