Program Notes

The Suite bergamasque is one of the most famous piano suites by Claude Debussy. It was first composed by Debussy around 1890, at the age of 28, but was significantly revised just before its publication in 1905. The third and most famous movement of Suite bergamasque is Clair de lune, in D-flat major. Its name comes from Verlaine's poem Clair de lune, "moonlight" in French. It is written in 9/8 meter, marked andante très expressif, and to be played mostly pianissimo. Musically, Debussy's Clair de lune belongs to French Impressionism.
