Shiny, new manuscript (made with Finale 2007c) of a Mertz Opus 4 nocturne that I found on the Music Library of Sweden website from the Carl Oscar Boije collection. It's fairly straight forward technically but is interesting musically with its majestic opening followed by a lively section with some development.

Thanks HH - this is a beautifully clear score. Reading it through on paper it looks a little more demanding than the 1st nocturne you posted recently - I know I'll enjoy working on it, even if I don't quite get there!
I'm sure many other members will enjoy this too.

Thank you for the excellent job, not to mention the, heh, mention of the Music Library of Sweden website (is in process of exploring the Boije collection). :D

Hi, all,
Yes, this is a beautiful score! It will be nice to have it on just two pages (the original is on 3). I've just discovered these Mertz Nocturnes myself from Boije website, and I've become obsessed with both 1 and 3. For me, they fall very nicely on the fretboard, but the writing has enough surprises to keep it interesting. For some reason, though, 2 just doesn't do it for me. I've given a cursory look at the rest of the Mertz available, but if anyone could point me toward some other pieces similar to the Nocturnes, I'd be most grateful!
Best, and keep playing!

I'd like to add my thanks, so clear & unambiguous!

Many scores(of this & other pieces) are just poor photocopies & I often can't decipher the incidentals.
