Bedtime Music: Debussy - Clair de Lune

Written in 1890 and originally the third of four movements in Claude Debussy's Suite bergamasque, Clair de lune ("Moonlight") is one of the most popular and widely used pieces of classical music today. This particular video is of Soviet violinist David Oistrakh (1908-1974), with Frida Bauer on piano. The recording was made in Paris in 1962.
