Imagine a beautiful painting of the sea, with all of its glory and majesty. Now imagine that painting transformed into 23 minutes of whirling, exciting, fantastical, and thrilling music. That's what you get when you hear Debussy's masterpiece, La Mer(the sea). Join conductor and host Joshua Weilerstein as we go through nearly every minute of this amazing piece of music, talking about Debussy's brilliant orchestration, his use of motivic connections, and his incredible depictions of the sea itself. Thanks so much for listening, and I hope you enjoy it!
