The introduction of the Barcarolle

The Barcarole in F sharp major, Op. 60 is a piece for solo piano by Frédéric Chopin, composed between autumn of 1845 and summer 1846. Based on the barcarole rhythm and mood, it features a sweepingly romantic and slightly wistful tone. Many of the technical figures for the right hand are thirds and sixths, while the left features very long reaches over an octave.
