Classic piece which tries to reproduce the chant of the Venitian gondoliers. It has a ternary form 6/8, 9/8, 12/8 and the accompaniment is regular (as the movement of a rowing boat).
This is a style of the romantic period (19th century).
Mendelssohn (Romances without Words, «Venitianisches Gondollied»), Chopin, Offenbach, Tchaïkovsky
