When compared with the other parts, the middle section of the Chopin Nocturne Op 48 No 2 f-sharp minor, più lento, is completely different—the piece modulates from minor to major (D-flat), changes its meter to 3/4 and decreases tempo. Frederick Niecks commented that the middle section "is much finer" and contains "soothing, simple chord progressions. Chopin once noted that the middle section was like a recitative and should be played as if a tyrant commands, and the other asks for mercy. The recapitulation is cut short by the coda, which ends in F♯ major
