Music History of Clair de Lune

Suite bergamasque is a piano suite by Claude Debussy.   It is one of the composer’s most famous piano works.  He began composing it around 1890 at the age of 28.  However, just before its 1905 publication he significantly revised the piece.

Debussy was unwilling to use these early piano compositions.  But he accepted the offer of a publisher in 1905 who thought they would be successful.  

Some of the Suite was written in 1890.  Debussy changed the names of at least two of the pieces. “Passepied” was composed under the title “Pavane”. 

Clair de lune was originally entitled “Promenade sentimentale”.

These names come from poems by Paul Verlaine.

The title of the third movement of Suite bergamasque comes from Verlaine’s poem “Clair de lune“.  

This refers to bergamasks in its opening stanza.
