Debussy

Debussy
Claude Debussy(1862-1918) was a French composer who, along with Ravel, was most recognised for his impressionist music. As one of the most influential composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries, his use of non-traditional scales, bitonal and parallel chords as well as other unusual music tonalities has inspired many other composers.

A beautiful, flowing introduction leads us into a magical fantasy. Sweet and tender, this is the first of Debussy's 'Deux Arabesques'. Written in E major and played at a slow tempo it gives a regal, emotional tone. Widely used in popular culture such as in TV themes and advertising. It has also been sampled by Alicia Keys and used in the video game 'Final Fantasy V'.
The second on Debussy's Arabesques is faster, brighter and more lively. Although the two works are usually put in the '20th Century' classical music period, they are now being increasingly seen as a separate impressionistic style popular with European composers.
Instantly recognisable, this beautiful work by Debussy is calm and soothing yet is intensely emotional in places. French for 'moonlight', this track is relaxing, reflective and simply delightful.
