Claude Debussy: Suite Bergamasque

Originally composed in 1890, the Suite Bergamasque was not published until 1905. It is unclear how much of it was revised during the fifteen-year interval.
The work could be regarded as Debussy’s tribute to French Baroque harpsichordists like Rameau and Couperin. Another source of inspiration was Paul Verlaine’s poem “Clair de lune”, which also references a so called “bergamask”, a rustic Italian dance.
Clair de lune
is also the title of third movement, which has become one of the most well-known pieces of the entire piano literature.
Debussy changed the titles of this and the concluding piece only shortly before publication – they were originally named Promenade sentimentale and Pavane.

xx Debussy Suites -- which one?
March 22, 2008, 04:06:28 PM by just_me

My teacher recommended that I get either the children's corner suite or the suite bergamasque. I like them both equally, so I am wondering which one will teach me more? Your replies are appreciated. Thanks! 

xx Claude Debussy - Suite Bergamesque. What level?
October 06, 2005, 10:01:47 AM by ccr


  I'm in the process of selecting and ordering (by difficulty) the pieces I would like to play. Suite Bergamesque is one of them, at least the prelude and Clair de Lune but don't know what level they are. Anybody knows the level for this pieces? Not the average/maximum for the entire suite, but for each of the movements.

  I searched the forums but found nothing about it.



PS: Aren't they beautiful Smiley
