    Tunes for dreamers

    Claude Debussy had been one of my favorite composers even before I knew how to write and behave like a big kid. Growing up my mother would play his tunes on the piano and flute and later I got to follow her footsteps and enjoy his dream like compositions. The French composer has been called the Impressionist and no surprised here, along with another favorite of mine, Ravel, dominated the turn into the twentieth century with his ethereal and magnificent creations. His unusual, radical harmonies have influenced artists that shape the world of music to this day. <BR/><BR/>This album has all of my favorite pieces, the melancholy Syrinx, bright and almost as if from a magical movie - Maiden with Flaxen hair, silky and soothing Reverie, Clair de Lune -something that sounds like star sprinkled night sky , Deux Arabesques - which I can play but not as well as my mom does - fantastic piano piece with waves of sound and floating chords. Other than Chopin no one else compares to Debussy when it comes to elegance and piano that touches me. This is perfect in the morning, afternoon or night, anytime I need soft, charming but never boring background music. Sometimes it's easy to forget that I'm listening to classical music, it simply sounds the way music should, without labels, taking my mind far away into a happier state. Those who like piano or harp compositions will enjoy this disc; it's really deliciously dreamy and cozy, very yum yum. <BR/><BR/>- Kasia S.

    Enchanting and breathtakingly beautiful music

    Debussy's music, particularly on this compilation, has a calming, dreamy effect and is perfect for those times when one needs to relax and regroup.

    You Found It!

    This is one of my top 3 favorite classical CDs. If you haven't been exposed to Debussy, this is a great way to start. It is what Impressionism in music was all about. The music provides a beautiful backdrop to any activity.

    Woke me up

    Great for daydreaming, except a couple of the selections can get too loud in comparison to the others, and break one's reverie.
