Masques et bergamasques, Op. 112, is a twentieth-century musical homage to the world of the fêtes galantes of the eighteenth century by the French composer, organist, and choirmaster Gabriel Fauré (1845–1924). Written quite late in Fauré’s life, Masques et bergamasques is commonly heard today as an orchestral suite. However, it originally arose in an unusual setting.As first performed in Monte Carlo on 10 April 1919, it was a commission by Albert I, Prince of Monaco and was designed to accompany a one-act divertissement, a danced and sung entertainment, with a scenario by René Fauchois inspired by Paul Verlaine, relating how members of a commedia dell’arte troupe would spy on the amorous encounters of aristocrats in its audience.
