I’m starting a new series (I live for series, if you haven’t noticed… 😉
And in this one, we’ll explore great composers from around the globe.
And first up is: Claude Debussy and this is my favorite piece of all time.
I first heard this piece, “Clair de Lune” (it means “Moonlight” in French) in high school when I was up late watching The Scent of Green Papaya on the Independent Film Channel in high school (remember that channel? Does it still exist?).
So here it is…..
Um…ok, when I came back this morning to read some of my blog, I saw that the “Clair de Lune” video hadn’t posted; something had happened with my code and the video was not accepted. So while looking for a replacement video, I stumbled across this talented young man (ok…he’s a little boy, but I love calling little boys “young men”…it’s empowering!)
Little boy or Young man, the kid’s a prodigy, and his name is Daniel Clarke Bouchard.
Listen to his performance of Debussy’s “Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum” it’s quite lovely.
I had to include it.
So look up “Clair de Lune” later after you hear listen to this:
