Debussy Clair de Lune on Flute
Michele McGovern is a Chicago classical flutist who has performed Debussy Clair de Lune on Flute on several occasions. The history behind the composer is intriguing, yet his personality seems to resonate through his music. Claude-Achille Debussy was a French composer who lived from 1862 until 1918. One the most memorable compositions is Debussy Clair de Lune on Flute. Unlike many musical geniuses and artists, Debussy was highly praised and recognized during his life time, despite his rather risqué lifestyle that included several affairs and multiple wives. At one point in his life, he and his pregnant mistress stole away to London to await his divorce. His current wife was so distraught by his demand to end the marriage that she attempted suicide. It was this turning point that sent the composer and his lover to London.
