In 1935, Germaine Tailleferre was asked to write the stage music for Jean Sarment's play "Madame Quinze"which was produced by the Comédie Française. The play was about Madame de Pompadour and Louis XV andalso featured the Société de la Musique Ancienne (Henri Casadesus playing the viola d'amour, Marius Casadesuson the quinton, Régina Patorni-Casadesus playing the harpsichord, Lucette Casadesus at the viola de gamba,Maurice Devilliers at the bass viol). The production was reprised by the Comédie Française in 1950, this time atthe Odéon theatre and Tailleferre revised her score at that time.This suite of five pieces for harpsichord is taken mainly from the original 1935 production, with the addition of thefinal 5th piece in the 1950 Odéon production. In the score at the Paris Opera Library, "da capo" repeates are not indicated,but they are clearly marked in the harpsichord part at the Comédie Française Library. Several tempo indicationswere suggested by the American Harpsichordist Jory Vinikour.
