Cover Image La Berceuse
Morceau de Concert
Félix Godefroid (1818-1897)

La Berceuse is an ideal piece to introduce moderately advanced players to Godefroid’s musical language. It starts with a caressing and playful tune whose repetitious accompaniment effectively lulls the ear, then goes into a middle section of effusive character, as if sleep comes from within to overcome us with a powerful rush. The melody is fleshed out by a cross-fingered pattern, a device used by Godefroid in many pieces to help build the emotional climax. A small cadenza serves as a transition to bring back the first theme, which soon repeats itself into oblivion.
