Barcarolle No 6 in E flat major, Op 70


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.

La Barcarolle no6 fut composée et publiée en 1896. Sa grâce agile, voluptueuse ne dément en rien le caractère toujours plus ascétique du compositeur vieillissant. Pour charmante et indéniablement mélodieuse qu’elle soit, elle laisse déjà clairement transparaître le style du Fauré ultérieur, où des modulations inattendues sont associées à une texture d’une harmonie mince, acerbe, et profondément originale.

In 1896 wurde die Barcarolle Nr. 6 komponiert und veröffentlicht. Ihre geschmeidige, wollüstige Anmut täuscht nicht über den zunehmend asketischen Charakter des alternden Komponisten hinweg. Sie ist charmant und unleugbar melodiös, doch macht sich der Stil der späten Schaffenszeit Faurés nun eindeutig bemerkbar: unerwartete Modulationen und ein Gefüge aus mageren, strengen und zutiefst originellen Harmonien.
