Details

Bisgaard started to compose Barcarole (1986–87), at a happy time in his life; the piece is dedicated to the singer Suzanne Nielsen as a birthday greeting. ‘Barcarole’ means ‘boating song’ (from the Italian barca, ‘boat’) and is a piece in peacefully flowing tempo, with the melody in the right hand; the left hand accompanies with triplet figures. Stylistically the piece is close to a Romantic barcarole, for example those of Mendelssohn (the four Venetianische Gondellieder in his Lieder ohne Worte) and—in monumental form—Chopin’s Barcarole, Op. 60 (1846).
