“Reflets dans l’eau”

"Reflets dans l'eau"

 

“Reflets dans l’eau” (reflections in water) is a musical description of rippling water. It appears on the album “Images” and was composed by Claude Debussy in 1904.

 

Claude Debussy (August 22, 1862 – March 25, 1918) was a French composer. He is considered one of the most prominent figures working within the field of Impressionist music, though he himself intensely disliked the term when applied to his compositions. He established a new concept of tonality in European music.

 

I often have Debussy’s music in my mind when I come to ghats of Varanasi (Benaras). This picture shows the reflections of a boat on the holy waters of the Ganges. Apart from the frame there is no edition to this image.
