Debussy’s La mer is one of classical music’s most unforgettable and immersive experiences, whisking the listener through a glowing Impressionistic dreamscape of shimmering beauty and mystical, awe-inspiring power. Fragments of La mer ebb and flow throughout Tōru Takemitsu’s haunting concerto for two pianos and orchestra, Quotation of Dream. The conclusion of the Songs of the Earth festival, these concerts also offer the chance to experience Toshio Hosokawa’s breathtaking meditation on nature, Autumn Wind, which features a solo role for the shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute).
