Program Notes

Prelude from Suite Bergamasque


Claude Debussy, composer

Prelude from Suite Bergamasque, written by Claude Debussy in 1890, but not published until 1905, is in A-B-A form. The later publishing followed stylistic updating, reflecting Debussy’s desire to revise the original composition with more current musical ideas and stylistic considerations. Bill Holcombe’s transcription highlights the unique color of the woodwind ensemble, and captures the gleam and transparency, with full impressionistic sonorities.
