FutureStarrClair De Lune Sheet Music
The 1913 arrangement of Clair de lune by pianist/composer Maurice Ravel is one of the world’s most popular songs. But the sheet music has long been out of print, and has become collectible with their current scarcity.
“Clair de Lune” is an iconic piece for the piano. It’s beautiful, recognizable, and oh so peaceful. The original sheet music for “Clair de Lune” by Claude Debussy isn’t easy, so we’ve created an easier version that anyone, even beginners, can share in the joy of this amazing piece.
Clair de lune is the quintessential impressionist piano piece, as magical as the moonlight of its title. Composed in 1890, it was revised by Debussy for publication in 1905 as the third of four pieces that form the Suite bergamasque. Claire de lune was the first piano composition to evoke the musical atmosphere of “impressionism” as portrayed in the paintings of Claude Monet and in the poetry of Paul Verlaine. The piece is perfectly proportioned and deserves the immense popularity it has enjoyed for nearly a century. Performance requirements include musical sensitivity and special attention to chord voicing, subtle dynamic gradations, and tone color. When played with elegance and clarity, Claire de lune is immensely gratifying for both the performer and listener.
