9 Mar 2018
Composer: Claude Debussy
Other participants: Daniel Barenboim
Debussy wanted his piano preludes to be played and listened to privately. This film pays tribute to his wish, featuring Daniel Barenboim interpreting the first book of these delicate musical pieces. Architecture, old photographs, a dancer and pictures of nature appear, evoked by the music and the personal circumstances of the composer's life, with comments by his friends.
