Clair de lune (5:13)

Cover of Klavierwerke: Clair de Lune

From Klavierwerke: Clair de Lune and 264 other releases

“Clair de Lune’ is actually the third and most famous movement of Claude Debussy’s “Suite Bergamasque.” Although Debussy wrote the piece in 1890 at the age of 25, it was not published until 1905. By that time it had been partially re-written as well as re-titled. The original name of this piece was “Promenade Sentimentale.” The new title for the movement comes from a poem by the same name written by Paul Verlaie and means “moonlight.”

    Debussy composed other pieces of music but this always comes up first. Very beautiful and relaxing. Thank you Claude.

    I don't understand why this piece is so popular. I like Debussy's works but I have no idea what's so special about Clair de lune, really

    The Moon is , of course, slowly moving away from Earth.......... about 2 inches per annum. Hang around long enough and it will no longer be visible from here............. this music will still be good , though
