Soothes The Soul
A few months ago, I saw a Canadian television commercial for a Lexus. Normally I don't pay much attention to vehicle ads, but the piece of piano music moved me. It was familiar, yet elusive.
I wondered if it was Gershwin or perhaps an older composition. I tried Googling, but all the forums said it was a piece commissioned by Lexus. I didn't believe it. The music seemed too... timeless for a car commercial.
When I watched Twilight (yes, I actually watched it) the music showed up again. So I did a little more digging. It is called Claire de Lune, composed by Claude DeBussy. Here it is on YouTube, courtesy of Enigma. Enjoy.
