Gretry's opera L'Epreuve villageoise, from which this ballet music comes, is founded on the story of the devoted couple whose affection was all the stronger after each in turn had found the other out in a moment of infidelity.
L'Epreuve villageoise was one of over fifty operas of Gretry which were successfully produced in Paris during his life-time (1741-1813). Gritry has been called ' the Moliere of music'.

Andre Messager was born in 1853, studied at the Ecole Niedermayer in Paris, and later became the pupil of Saint-Saens. He began writing opéra-comique and then came to England and wrote a number of light operas that were extremely successful.
The suite is from the ballet The Two Pigeons, which is a ballet in six movements. The first is a march, energetic and with a hint of Hungarian rhythm ; the second is the dance of the two pigeons, dignified and capricious by turns ; the third is a theme with three variations. The fourth is a sort of interlude, sprightly and full of interest; the fifth a Hungarian dance, and the last is in a very quick march rhythm.
