Google celebrates 151 years since the birth of French composer Claude Debussy with Clair de lune Google Doodle.

The doodle features a night time riverside scene, with boats passing along the river, cyclists on the steets, and ends with two people huddled together under a red umbrella while Clair de lune, the third movement of his Suit Bergamasque, plays.

Debussy was one of the most highly regarded impressionist composers. He was born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 1862 and showed musical promise from an early age, winning the Grand Prix de Rome in 1884 at the age of 22 for his cantanta L’Enfant prodigue.

He died in 1918 at the age of 55.
