CLASSICAL OPUS no.6

Claude Debussy: “Clair de lune”

クロード・ドビュッシー:「月光」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 6 minutes

A spacious, viscerally delicate, almost effete anthem to unexpected, voiceless tenderness.  Debussy vanquishes the pinnacle of impressionistic sensuality in the most poetic of musical forms.  Two versions are included here.  Seong-Jin Cho’s take on the lunar theme is more immediate in silences that he actively lays down, almost with John Cage-ian dexterity.

A REFLECTION

 

Unhappy perhaps the man, but happy the artist torn by desire!

Eager to paint the one that has appeared to me so rarely and that has fled so quickly,

 like a beautiful sad thing left by the traveler carried away into the night.

How long now has he been gone!
