Program Notes

The Suite Bergamasque is a piano suite composed by Claude Debussy. It was first composed around 1890, at the age of 28, but was significantly revised just before its publication in 1905.

The first piece in the suite, entitled Prélude, is in the key of F major and marked moderato tempo rubato. Its legato phrases give it a smooth, flowing feel.

The third and most famous movement of Suite Bergamasque is Clair de lune.
