Claude Debussy: Danses sacrée et profane

Claude Debussy: Danses sacrée et profane

Debussy’s Danses is two dances melded into one piece. Contrasting "sacrée" and "profane" themes provide the audience an experience of spirit and body, heaven and Earth, and ethereal and corporeal.

"Profane" in French does not mean “irreverent”, “impious”, or “blasphemous”. It simply means “secular” in contrast to sacred with no negative connotation attached to it.

Enjoy Debussy's Danses sacrée et profane for harp & strings, in this encore performance originally released, May 15th, 2021.
