New from Kent: An Easier Arrangement of ‘Clair de Lune’

Dear fans of Claude Debussy,

Here’s brand new sheet music for members of PWK; this one is arranged for early intermediate piano: Clair de Lune by Debussy. The arrangement is in the key of C, for ease of reading, plus it has been simplified (easier to play). In addition, it’s much shorter than the full version which is also on my sheets page.

Today’s version of Clair de Lune has every note labeled with its letter-name, such as E, D#, A. Some markings (dynamics, etc.) have been omitted.

These letter-note labeled sheets are primarily for adults who are not taking piano lessons — especially those who have past experience reading music, but who might have forgotten the details.

About Clair de Lune and Claude Debussy

Clair de Lune is the third movement of Claude Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque, in D♭ major. Its name comes from Verlaine‘s poem “Clair de lune“, which means “moonlight” in French.

Claude Debussy is probably the best known composer of the Impressionist school, a handful of pioneers who were mostly active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Maurice Ravel, who wrote the popular orchestral piece called Boléro (along with tons of ground-breaking serious works), is also a famous Impressionist.
