Debussy scores a 20-million hit

This may be the most people that have ever listened to Claude Debussy.

In a video from Lana Del Rey’s album Freak, the American singer segues without warning at 5:33 into the French master’s Clair de Lune. The piano piece plays while young women float underwater in diaphanous garments.

Just as Debussy intended, no doubt.

Watch.

Any idea who’s playing?

  • Maybe there’s a poll attached asking which section the viewing prefers? Or is it Lana del Rey showing off her pianistic chops?
