Interrupted Serenade

Piano trying to sound like guitar…

I had linked to Claudio Arrau again, one of the greatest pianists who has ever lived, but the time stamp did not work well because the video was with much more than one piece. So I changed to Michelangeli, another legendary pianist.

This is a short Prelude by Debussy. He wrote two books of Preludes, all very unusual, free-form pieces that often set moods. He wrote the title of each at the end, to show that he really wanted people to love the music independent from any kind of description.

Debussy basically change the way we process music while listening. In his music you can hear a lot of the sounds that are used today in jazz, computer game music, film music and other kinds of background music.
