Oh yeah! And Syrinx, and La Mer, and the Gm String Quartet, and L'Isle Joyeuse, and the piano suite, especially the Sarabande, in which numerous moments make my heart skip a beat... in fact what isn't there to love with Debussy? :D

Goldie Marie | 19 comments Clair de lune must be one of the most beautiful pieces ever composed.

Yes, utterly fantastic.


message 6: by Joel (new)

Joel La Mer, the String Quartet and Nocturnes are probably my favorites.

Eleanor (bookpossum) | 25 comments I recently added Jean-Yves Thibaudet's recordings of Debussy's piano works to my collection. I have seen some lukewarm reviews, but I enjoy his interpretations very much.

I love Michael Dulin's version of Clair De Lune.

Lien | 7 comments This is definitely the one that does it for me everytime:

La fille aux cheveux de lin (The girl with the flaxen hair) is so full of promise, yet so modestly portrayed. It always makes me happy and sad at the same time.

Emma Iadanza (emmaiadanza) I hate that piece!!!!!!!!!! I was forced to play it and I hate it so much!!!!

Lien | 7 comments Sorry Emma! Didn't mean for my post to incite such feelings in you...


message 14: by Emma (new)

Emma Iadanza (emmaiadanza) Yeah, it's ok. Not your fault. It's my 4th grade music teachers.

Nocturne in D-flat Major (pianist: Francoise-Joël Thoillier)

LobsterQuadrille | 8 comments One of my favorite pieces of music by Debussy is his "Prelude a L'apres-midi d'un faune"(I may have misspelled that...). The beginning is mysterious and sort of sad, but then the music becomes so joyful and sweet!

Julie (choxevani) | 12 comments La Mer, always, and I'm fond of this obscure piece, mainly for the harp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMRzG...

Barbara H (barbhh) | 66 comments Why would you call La Mer obscure? It is pretty well known.


message 19: by Julie (last edited Mar 06, 2015 06:22AM) (new)

Julie (choxevani) | 12 comments Barbara, no, I meant the youtube link.

"Danse sacrée et danse profane" for harp and strings.

glad to share it!


message 22: by Frank (new)

Frank McAdam I heard Muti conduct La Mer at Carnegie Hall at the end of January. I thought he did a great job, though it was really Scriabin's Third Symphony I'd gone to hear.
