Faure's 13"Barcarolles", composed over a period of almost four decades (1882-1921) are highly representative of his output for piano and are regarded as his most characteristic works.
They reflect his breaking free from the Romantic idiom, particularly that of Chopin and Mendelssohn, developing an independent musical language in which he combined tradition and the emerging modernism.
