About this Song
'Clair de Lune' is the third (and most famous) movement from Debussy's 'Suite bergamasque.' It begins with a slow, delicate passage that gradually builds towards a loud climax. The middle section famously consists of a dreamy melody, accompanied by soft, rolling arpeggio patterns. Eventually, the opening theme returns with slight variations, leading into a soft, subtle ending. The melancholic, dreamy nature of the piece lends itself very well to romantic and reflective scenes, and it has appeared in numerous soundtracks, including: Twilight, The Darjeeling Limited, Atonement, Ocean's Thirteen, Man On Fire, Ocean's Eleven, Seven Years In Tibet and The Game. This performance uses a perfectly sampled Yamaha C3 Neo grand piano, with subtle hall reverb for ambience.
