FAURE Barcarolles

Gabriel Urbain Fauré (French: [ɡabʁiɛl yʁbɛ̃ fɔʁe]; 12 May 1845 – 4 November 1924) was a French composer, organist, pianist and teacher. He was one of the foremost French composers of his generation, and his musical style influenced many 20th-century composers. Among his best-known works are his Pavane, Requiem, nocturnes and barcarolles. Although his best-known and most accessible compositions are generally his earlier ones, Fauré composed many of his most highly regarded works in his later years, in a more harmonically and melodically complex style.


 The title barcarolles implies no specific form. From the French meaning "trifle," it ... Other composers who wrote barcarolles for piano are Faure, Anton Rubinstein, Balakirev, Glazunov, and MacDowell
