Clair de Lune (Debussy) – Brass Quintet
The third and most famous movement of Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque, “Clair de Lune” was written in about 1890, originally under the title “Promenade sentimentale”. However, it went under a number of revisions prior to its publication in 1905, including changing its name to the French for moonlight. The name comes from a poem by Paul Verlaine of the same name; in fact it is the first stanza of this poem that give the suite of pieces its name.
This arrangement includes alternative parts for tenor horn, treble-clef euphonium and tuba.
