Of Fauré's shorter works for violin and piano, the Berceuse Op.16 has always been the best loved. Its perfectionism, with no note extraneous to musical purpose, is characteristic of Fauré's finest compositions, and its magical, hushed atmosphere renders it rather more than a 'cradle song'. Written in 1878-79, it was_the work that convinced the Paris music publisher Julien Hamelle to take Faure on (again without royalties). According to Faure's biographer Jean-Michel Nectoux, Faure himself attached 'no importance' to the Berceuse, but its beauty has always made it irresistible to violinists and listeners alike.
