Range La Barcheta

La Barcheta, a setting by Pietro Buratti, was composed by Reynaldo Hahn in 1901. It is the second song of Hahn’s song cycle Venezia.

Reynaldo Hahn composed his song cycle, Venezia, during his stay in Italy around 1900 (it was published a year later in 1901). He had come to join his lover, Marcel Proust, resting in Battaglia, a small thermal city. He found inspiration in the traditional Italian songs he heard in Venice and tried to capture their spirit, in his song cycle, Venezia. Five songs of his cycle are dedicated to friends, present during Hahn’s stay in Venice.

La Barcheta is the second and most famous song of Hahn’s song cycle Venezia. It is the only one of the cycle to not be dedicated. Likewise, the other songs of the cycle, La Barcheta is written in an Italian dialect -Venetian- so special attention to the pronunciation is required.
This song, set in G minor, seems to express some passionate emotion, in the midst of the night. The piano accompaniment, built around arpeggiated cords seems to imitate the playing of a guitar. The superposition of a ternary tempo at the vocal line (6/8) and binary at the piano (2/4), creates a sense of flow and freedom.
