Little is known about the origins of Debussy's Pour le piano, only that the second movement Sarabande was written in 1894 and that the autograph carries the clear inscription »1901«.

As with the Suite bergamasque , Pour le piano was published first by Fromont in 1901, although Debussy did not grant him the full rights to the composition until 1905. This delay had most certainly to do with Debussy's efforts to have Fromont transfer the rights to Pelleas et Melisande to his new exclusive publisher Durand; in other words Fromont was to own Pour le piano only if Durand owned Pelleas .

Barenreiter's new critical scholarly edition edited by Regina Back relies on all known sources, documenting the genesis of the composition, provides a detailed Critical Commentary and enlightens with its text passages on performance practice and Debussy's piano music.
