About

Daniel Barenboim invites us to discover the phantasmagorical universe of Claude Debussy.

Claude Debussy thought Book I of his Préludes (composed between December 1909 and February 1910) should be played "among four eyes", rather than in a concert hall, despite the composer himself having performed the pieces in public. Decades later, filmmaker Paul Smaczny fulfills the musician's wish by having Daniel Barenboim perform the 12 pieces from Book I in the intimacy of an art deco-style house. A dancer, paintings, and readings punctuate the film, inviting us into a Debussyan phantasmagoria.
