Claire De Lune. (For Piano Solo (Original Version, Unedited)). By Claude Debussy (1862-1918). For solo piano. Masterworks; Piano Solo; Solo. Kalmus Edition. Form: Suite. Impressionistic. SMP Level 9 (Advanced). Single piece. 7 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.K03372).
ISBN 0769284868. Impressionistic. 9x12 inches.
The original, unedited, unsimplified version of one of Debussy's most popular piano works. This ethereal, flowing section of "Suite Bergamasque" is diatonic and displays a conventional harmonic vocabulary in D-flat major. The title, "Clair de lune", suggests a relationship to Paul Verlaine's eponymous poem, describing a vision of long-dead dancers in the moonlight. The music transmits the otherworldly, transparent, and impalpable qualities of the experience while maintaining clarity and definition. Perfect for the burgeoning late intermediate pianist.

A wonderful piece of music

Give it a Whirl
Learn it- you won't regret it. That's all I can say! My dad isn't much of a music person, and when I played it for him, he actually realized there was some "story" behind it, so that must mean something. Good copy. Etc. Buy. ;)

Go for it!
I've noticed that many of the comments have warned beginners away. No offense intended towards those who commented along those lines, but anyone who truly loves a song can learn to play that song! This piece is so beautiful that it lulls you in, learning it is no barrier. I...
