Claude Debussy – La Fille aux cheveux de lin [instrumental week]

“Do not say no, cruel maiden.
Do not say yes. Better to know
The long lasting gaze of your eyes
And your rosy lips, oh, my belle.

For, love, in clear summer sunlight,
Has soared with the lark and sung now.

Farewell, you deer, farewell you hares
And the red partridge. I want
To stroke the gold of your tresses
Smothering lips with my kisses.

For, love, in clear summer sunlight,
Has soared with the lark and sung now.”

“La fille aux cheveux de lin”

The poem in french/english/german.

Claude Debussy – Claire de lune

… contemporary masterpiece ^_^ (included here) Debussy composed just some of the most yearning stuff you can get. And i think its not just the yearning, its the beautiful way to put it at rest. To satisfy it … to feel love.

Here’s a part of the wonderful scene from Frankie & Johnny with the adorable Michelle Pfeiffer & Al Pacino

… and a piano only version, enjoy!

… and this is … so so good :)
