Debussy: La Mer

In the second set of talks in April, Dr. Cavas Bilimoria dives into Claude Debussy’s emblematic La Mer. French for ‘The Sea’, it comprises ‘Three Symphonic Sketches’ for its three movements. Master of orchestral impressionism, Debussy paints a picture of the ever-changing play of light, colour and reflection produced by moving water. Fittingly, the woodblock print of Katsushika Hokusai’s ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ was the composer’s choice to adorn the title page of the score.
