Saturday Morning Cartoons: Debussy’s 'Clair de lune'

Saturday, February 09, 2013

For this week’s cartoon we feature Debussy’s “Clair de lune” from Suite bergamasque, because the moon has such important symbolism for the Lunar New Year.

This piece was featured in a segment of Walt Disney’s 1940 Fantasia, that was not used in the original release.of the film.  Our performance of Clair de Lune comes from this week’s featured album, Aquarelles
