||The Suite bergamasque is one of the most famous piano suites of Claude Debussy, and is widely regarded as the most fascinating. It was likely named after Paul Verlaine's poem "Clair de lune", which references a bergamask. It was published in 1903. The third movement of Suite bergamasque is its most famous; titled "Clair de lune," which is French for moonlight, it is heard widely in movies, television shows, advertisements, and the like. The piece is mostly played pianissimo, and the variations between intensity and distance make this masterpiece one of the most beautiful from the Impressionist epoch. It is played in D-flat major, with the exception of its climax which modulates to E major.
