Default Claire De Lune - Most Beautiful Piano Piece Ever

youtube[dot]com/watch?v=TGW6Kztn3Xw

Another great piece by Debussy. Don't let the fact that it was on Twilight ruin it for you, this is a timeless classic. The beautiful harmonies featured vividly paint a picture of the moonlight shining across the dark ocean. You guys have to listen to this, it's pure awesome.

.
It is a beautiful piece -- here's a better link.




For those who prefer a spicier Debussey, here's The Rays' transformation of 'Clair De Lune' (1961).

Great piece. I am a guitar player and beginner piano player working on his other piece "Gardens in the Rain" but I cannot understand much theory. I just read the music in whatever key signatures come up. But why is theory so hard to understand? And if not, then is there a more simple way to understand a theoretical analysis to this piece?

It's not the most beautiful, but it is really lovely.

I do love this piece, but consider others to be my 'most beautiful' pieces.

Never can get sick of Clair De Lune. Much better than the Moonlight Sonata, if we're going on themes of the moon.

So true - but for many people - Twilight is the only way some people will hear it -- then all of a sudden Debussy becomes a new fad for millennium generation...

It's very nice, true. I don't mind the Twilight context, at least more people will hear it and younger people. It seems like movie have that ability to make classical music more available for diverse audiences....

The Girl with the Flaxen Hair has a great melody.
