Claude Debussy, 1862 - 1918, French composer, one of only two of the most prominent composers of Impressionist music. His music was so lovely, so powerfully, that he was made a "Chevalier of the Legion of Honour". Claire de lune (“Light of the moon") a gentle, ethereal time of day that is captured in every note of Claude Debussy’s magnificent piece. It is part of The Suite Bergamasque, one of the most famous piano suites, named it after Paul Verlaine's 1869 poem, which references a bergamask dance under the moonlight. Debussy began in 1890, but did not publish the work until 1905. "Clair De Lune" is heard widely in movies, TV shows and advertisements, including part of the soundtrack to James Dean's final motion picture, Giant, the scene outside the Bellagio's fountains in Ocean's Eleven, and Edward and Bella’s music in Twilight. The famous writer and poet, Victor Hugo, said, “I only know two pieces: one is Clair de Lune” and the other one isn’t.” Here is a certified signature by Claude Debussy, above which he wrote “America concert”, which he had planned but never made due to the outbreak of World War I.
