Claude Debussy’s Suite bergamasque was first published in 1905 by
the French publisher
Fromont, but the suite’s origins go back to the early 1890s when it
was first under contract
with the publisher Choudens. By the time of the suite’s publication
nearly 15 years had
transpired and the originally three-movement suite had evolved into
one with four-movements
with different titles and the work was issued by a publisher to whom
Debussy had difficult
relations.

The extant 1st proofs to the first edition, corrected by Debussy,
clearly show his excision of
dozens of bars as well as revealing numerous textural alterations.
In 1909 at the earliest,
Fromont re-engraved the suite and added many accidentals - in
particular in the Passepied
- thus altering the harmony. This later engraving has been the basis
for all modern editions
although no justification for the re-engraving or the resulting
modifications can be traced
back to Debussy.

Regina Back’s Urtext edition clearly lays out the development of the
suite, documents the
various reprints and the changes to them, and she offers unique
insights into the title of the
suite and the individual movements.

 

Bärenreiter’s new edition is based on the first edition corrected by
Debussy - with its original
harmony - and offers the later alterations as small print in the
volume.

- State-of-the-Art Bärenreiter quality Urtext

- Performer information on Aesthetics i.e. pedalling, tempo,
articulation, dynamics

- Critical report (Eng.) and Facsimile 

“Another direct hit for Bärenreiter’s!” (Piano Journal, Winter 2008)


“For quality and economy, this comes highly recommended.”
(International Piano Nov./Dec. 2008)

“Important publication…” (music teacher, December ’08)
