Sometimes at work it’s nice to take a moment and put on some classical music in the background. For me today that was Claude Debussy’s Deux Arabesques, Arabesque No.1.
Arabesque No. 1, written by French composer Claude Debussy in 1888, was originally a captivating piano piece that showcases the composer’s exquisite mastery of impressionism in music.
This version was arranged for the harp, and is characterized by its flowing and intricate melodies, evoking a sense of dreamlike imagery and serene contemplation. The piece captures the essence of Debussy’s unique style, with its delicate harmonies and subtle shifts in tonality to create a shimmering, ethereal quality. This version is performed by French harpist Sonia Bize.
