The Barcarolle in F-sharp major, Op. 60 is a piece for solo piano by Frédéric Chopin, made up between fall of 1845 and summer season 1846, three years prior to his death. Based on the barcarolle rhythm and mood, it features a sweepingly romantic and a little wistful tone. Much of the technical figures for the right hand are thirds and sixths, while the left features very long reaches over an octave.
This is among Chopin’s last major compositions, in addition to his Op. 61 Polonaise-Fantasie. Efficiency times typical 7-9 minutes.
