Barcarolle No 6 in E flat major, Op 70
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Barcarolle No 6was composed and published in 1896. Its lithe, voluptuous grace does not belie the increasingly ascetic character of the ageing composer. Charming and undeniably melodious though it is, the style of the later Fauré is now clearly showing through: unexpected modulations and a texture of lean, astringent, and profoundly original harmony.
