Plan for the Concerto No. 2 in Vienna
August 13, 1829. Chopin’s first stay in Vienna.  Chopin has new friends from the music circle. In a letter to his family he writes: "Today I have met count Lichnowski; he kept complimenting […] this is the same who was the best friend of Beethoven". He confesses that he was convinced to perform yet one more concert: "I will not deliver the third concert and I wouldn’t have delivered the second one if not for their insistence, and then I started to think that maybe in Warsaw they would say: "Well, he delivered one concert and left, maybe they found him a poor pianist." They promise me a good review. […] And the second concert is for free, this is for Mr. count who is short of money (but keep it secret). I will perform Rondo and I will improvise." He concludes with enthusiasm: "Apart from this I am healthy and happy, I eat and drink well. I like Vienna and there are many Poles in it; in the ballet there is even one who at my performance cared so much about me that he brought for me water with sugar and encouraged me, etc."

About nocturnes
In the Leipzig "Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung" Gottfried Wilhelm Fink writes about Nocturnes Op. 15: "they are realist dreams of hesitant soul in a calm night".
