Notes & Reviews:

Like Chopin's Barcarolle, Faure's work shows equal measures of limpidity and gravity, brightness and great depth. This music is very secretive, yet very human - because of its elan, its aspiration to vastness, and its inner poetry. Not a single page of the thirteen Barcarolles is lacking that inspiration, which so movingly brings them together as a set of thirteen poems.

"One Barcarole was enough for Chopin, but Faure turned out 13. While some might expect that 13 stylized Venetian gondolier songs would be a bit much to listen to all in a row, pianist Delphine Bardin's sensitive performances let them slide by as easily as a gondola. With her superlative technique, subtle tone, and graceful legato, Bardin's got the right equipment for the job, and with her flowing tempos, nuanced balances, and elegant interpretations, she's clearly got the right soul as well...Captured by Alpha Productions in richly detailed and vivid sound, this disc should be heard by anyone who admires Faure." - All Music Guide
