Preludes, Book I, L. 117: VIII. La Fille Aux Cheveux De Lin (Debussy)

Carlo Corazza, a talented Italian pianist, recorded this on a real acoustic piano.

Claude Debussy‘s La fille aux cheveux de lin is a solo piano composition. Very serene and calming. The piece, which is named after a poem by Leconte de Lisle, is notable for its musical simplicity, which contrasts with Debussy’s style at the time.

The prelude is one of Debussy’s most frequently performed works, both in its original form and in various subsequent arrangements.
