Frederic Chopin : Nocturne No.20 in C# minor (Opus Post.) for piano solo - sheet music, midi & mp3 files. Only 18 of Chopin's Nocturnes were published during his life. This piece wasn't originally labelled as a Nocturne, but it has all the hallmarks of the form so it was called Nocturne No.20 when published after Chopin's death.
