Debussy's birthday today, check out Google Doodle

Claude Debussy celebrated in Google doodle

Google is celebrating the 151st anniversary of the birth of French composer Achille-Claude Debussy with an animated doodle set to one of his best-known pieces, Clair de lune (Moonlight).
The doodle features a moonlit riverside scene which progresses to the sound of the piece, the third movement of his most famous piano suites, Suite bergamasque (1890–1905). Lights in the streets and houses flicker on and off in time to the music as the silhouettes of cars, boats and cyclists pass by, smoke rises from chimneys and rain begins to fall.
The animation ends with two people in different boats crossing paths on the river and sharing a red umbrella.

It's beautiful!

Pas de Quatre: Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia
Divas: Lenglen, Seles, Sharapova
