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 music will forever be for Edward and Bella.
This piece will forever be my favorite. When I hear it , it's like all my emotions are set free and I am at peace.
Lovely
Beautiful piece of music!!!
This song makes my heart hurt. But not in a sad or bad way... i just cant explain it.
magana.mayre
Real music in its intensity. Touches my heart, soul, and emotions beyond words...
Love cooking to this with my beautiful girlfriend, can just loose yourself in its beauty and live in the moment...
This was an amazing piece of work!!
Mimmo Una meraviglia
Beauty, peace, calm, relaxayvoo.
So Inspired by the heart and for the heart. This song touches every emotional moment in my life. It humbles me and shows me beauty in so many personal ways.
jdavi0189
Clair de lune - one of those compositions that, from the first time you hear it, you know you'll always remember 'when and where', along with the incomparable emotion that rare, stellar music can bring to the human soul.
A true artist who paved the waves for some many other French composers
My go to sleep music (:
How lovely. I could listen to his music forever..... . . . n i c e
All that rhapsodizing , & I 4got 2 thank God 4 Claude DeBussy himself. Oops. Oh,yeah, & also THANK U, GOD, 4 PANDORA!!!!! :-D Next pet that God blesses me with will be named "Pandora". "Pandorio" 4 a male. Even if it's a snake. Or a bug. Or a chicken.
THANK U GOD, 4 EARS!!!!! & AUDITORY NERVES!!!!! & BRAINS!!!!! ETC,ETC,ETC! ! ! ! !
( even 2nd~hand brains like mine!!!!! :-) )
Music is LIFE!!!!! :-)
This movie came in twilight am I right? Either way the music is a great dedication to music in itself :)
♥ this is just the song i always am in need of. Always.
scottishdogl o v e r
to whovian turner. You are one sick person. Don't degrade Debussy by your comments
tfb123
Why can't Pandora remove these ubiquitous, Don't read this... comments? Do they not care enough about their users to make even a modest effort in this regard? Or maybe spam-free comment sections is one of the benefits of the paid version?
You don't have to love a person to love their music, Beethoven wasn't exactly Mr. Personality either. But you have to love Debussy's music, unique and beautful in many ways.
Gorgeous❤️
And that is the reason ocean's eleven was a great movie.
Magic moon>>>>>cla i r De Lune
Some of these comments are hilarious
kevinmiguele z
This makes me want to eat ice cream by the fire in the park with my cat.
eliza.comer
@jo_flags_12 - I think this piece was at the end of Ocean's 11
persianandpr o u d 1 4
Amazing! ❤️
morenojohann a 3
Perfect!! The song was also in The Darjeeling Limited. (Movie)
Just can't stop listening to it....
Made me cry, so amazingly beautiful... now i want to paint! :)
Raven...
Was introduce to Clair de Lune in 1952, and while not being a pianist, sat down and memorized it,and can still play it to this day.
In about 1970 I found that another favorite song by Joni James titled
My Reverie, was actually from a composition by DeBussy called simply
Reverie.
Then near the year2000 I came across an old record of ' The Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun' . I was stunned to find that it too is
a composition by de Bussy. Now you have my three favor
I'm not into necrophilia but I would f**k Claude Debussy
azmad0890
I love Clair de Lune want to learn how to play it....
When music makes you cry you know that it is really beautiful. I need a hankie.
Clair De Lune...Never more beautiful than on the guitar.
awesome
mimi.sakaret t
this song gives me tingles all over.
this is one of the songs on my sons bed time list. it use to put them fast to sleep
bethtabaka
Very funny! I love those kinds of misunderstan d i n g s , i.e, The Pullet Surprise...
I have loved Clair de Lune all of my long life and always thought of it's composer as W.C. Silly me. Debussy's music still sounds as sweet by any other name.
connielpears o n
It was the song in the final scene of Oceans 11.
That's gross
