Claude Debussy

August 22, 1862 - March 25, 1918
born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France, composed during the Modern period
The principal figurehead of French Impressionism -- a term he disliked -- Claude Debussy (1862-1918) changed the language of European music through works such as his symphonic poems Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (1894), La mer (1905), the opera Pelléas et Mélisande (1903) and piano sets such as Images (1907). "Clair de lune" from Suite bergamasque (1890) remains his most famous work, yet his sense of harmonic color -- inspired by Indonesian and Russian music -- helped to usher in the modern era. Intensely competitive and sometimes unkind to those around him, Debussy's personal life was often tragic, and ultimately short. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

This my favorite piece of music ever to be composed
Man i love this guy. Good work Claude!!!
Like ,CLAUD ACHILL DEBUSSY ! ! ! Grazie !
One of the most adroit fingers ever to touch a piano - What it must have been like to listen to Claude in person, somewhere in Paris or Vienna. This is a really beautiful, careful rendition.
I've come to find out- after 30 years metaphysical research- CERTAIN songs and symphonies, even rock! music*, have the imprimtur of God Himself. This is one. Nothing more divine than this piece and divinely inspired I'm sure!

*the harmonies are meant to inspire mankind, to make him/her grow spiritually.
i cant listen to this song anymore since evil within came out
Clair de lune always makes me feel so at peace....Tha n k s Claude �� haha
Love listening to his music while doing my homework!! Helps me get really creative!!!!
Tranquility Peace Calming the Mind
Can you imagine being stoned and listen to Claude Debussy, farout man
gheormaig
Since when beethoven is similar with Mendelsson, Saint-Saens or Debussy? Pandora needs to sort out its algorithms for classical music.
Clair de lune ...how can i love this anymore than i already do?
juneapple66
Studied this on the piano. It just lets your imagination run free
This might be the most beautiful piece of music ever written. Ironic that Debussy was bit of a tortured soul, but wrote such peaceful music.
Joancain62 she died?
Love this piece!!! Just soothes your soul
cathrn1813
The first time I heard this, I couldn't believe my ears. I thought I'd gone to Heaven!
prestondevli n
Simply beautiful.
pretty sure this was the song at the Fountain Scene at the end of Ocean's 11
Claude Debussy as Indiana Jones XD
maisiehurd
This is on the movie "Ocean's Eleven". I love this music! It is so beautiful!
kitkitteh
Bioshock infinite!
This is unequivocall y my favorite piece of music
So beautiful.. <3
Since he's been dead for 100 years, yet his music still lives on, what does it matter that he was "a bad person?"
i have classical piano music on when i study and i get in the perfect study mode when his pieces are on
I named my daughter Claire in honor of this song. Now she is gone. I still have the music.
kitt141
Bad! Haha!
Beautiful music for the mind and soul. Classic art
I love Debussy's Claire de Lune!
Debussy's music is incredibly sweet And relaxing. Great for studying! So is Dvoraks serenade for the strings in something major! Beautiful!
imbetterthan y o u 5 0

Bad!!!!!!!!! ! ! ' n n
Lovely. It sounds almost as if it's from another world.
jjbr921
Rephrased: Not a bad person. Just another great artist (sound better?) who destroyed relationship s . Not atypical, as most great artists tend not to be great relationship builders.
Jjbr921: i think you're thinking of wagner
beautiful
I am in love with piano music but more in love with this one.

He wasn't a bad person!
