Clair de Lune [Debussy]

I know, I know, I am the worst person in the world. Right now my life is far too hectic - I just haven't got the time to sit at the piano.

That kind of sounds like "I haven't got the time to breathe" to a part of me, but I really don't. There is too much going on at Casa Caela for such indulgences...

So here's one I prepared earlier - yes, I am turning into Janet Ellis - a not very polished recording of Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune. I used to dislike this piece greatly, which begs the question, "why do I bother with it?" - but it has grown on me.

Good music, shame about the pianist...

(Ellie is working towards a school concert at the end of May and I hope to sneak a few recordings from her. She's doing two Bach and a Beethoven.)
