Clair de lune - Claude Debussy: the beloved French piano classic in a gravity-defying performance that reaches for the stars. Piano: Alexandre Tharaud (Warner Classics/Erato) Choreography/dance: Yoann Bourgeois, acrobat http://www.ccn2.fr Filmed and edited by Raphaël Wertheimer More for the Debussy centenary: http://www.debussy100.com "To create – to be creative – is to draw a door on the wall, and then open the door. 'Clair de lune' opens this door wide to transport us to a time where time doesn’t pass. That’s why we become children again when we listen to this music. Artists exploring ideas together become like childhood friends. Alexandre simply closed his eyes and we found each other, on the other side of the door." -Yoann Bourgeois
