Information about the piece

Moon River is an iconic song composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics provided by Johnny Mercer. It was originally performed by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, where it served as the actress's character's theme song. The song draws its inspiration from Mercer's southern upbringing, specifically the river near his childhood home.

Musically speaking, Moon River is written in the key of C major and exhibits a simple yet moving melody. The song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song and a Grammy Award for Record of the Year. It has since been covered by numerous artists in various genres, earning its place as one of the powerful classic songs in the American songbook.
