About Debussy’s ‘La Mer’ with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
“I have slandered the sea” wrote Claude Debussy. “Today it is beautiful enough to defy all comparisons”. Yet 100 years after his death in 1918, Debussy’s La Mer is surely the most poetic seascape ever painted for an orchestra, the work of a composer whose quiet genius turned music into an art of limitless expressive subtlety. This centenary celebration opens with Nocturnes – Impressionist paintings, transformed into ravishing sound – and includes the Prélude whose unprecedented sensuality scandalised Belle Époque Paris. But there’s darkness as well as light: Thomas Dausgaard joins Joaquín Achúcarroin the brooding concerto that Debussy’s compatriot Ravel created for a pianist who’d lost an arm in the Great War.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Debussy’s ‘La Mer’ with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
