The Barcarole in F-sharp major, Op. 60 is a grand, expansive work from the late period in the oeuvre of Frédéric Chopin. Written in the years 1845-46, it was published in 1846. Chopin refers in this work to the convention of the barcarola - a song of the Venetian gondoliers which inspired many outstanding composers of the nineteenth century, including Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Liszt and Fauré. Yet it is hard to find a barcarolle that would compare with Chopin's work for beauty and compositional artistry.
