Bergamasque, sweetened

This is the one piano piece my mother remembered from the days when she took lessons, and she played it just about the way that Fluttershy Andrea Libman plays it here:

Debussy, I am told, wrote the Suite bergamasque (of which this is the third movement) in his twenties, grew to hate it, and stashed it away for about twenty-five years, when a plea from a publisher persuaded him to blow the dust off of it and revise it. Millions of us are glad he did.
