Claude Debussy’s “Passepied” (a type of dance which originated in Brittany) constitutes the final movement of his famous piano suite “Suite bergamasque.” In F sharp minor and marked “allegretto ma non troppo,” it is a happy, strangely medieval, piece, which is surprisingly faster than its Baroque counterparts. Throughout most of its duration, the piece is played with staccato arpeggios in the left hand.
The item is included in the following music pack:
