Sail away with music of the seas

Embark on an uplifting adventure with Mendelssohn’s Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage. Low strings ripple with hope before their pace quickens and they guide you towards land, winds beckoning you home. Courage and conviction are embedded in the melodies of Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1. Then take a magical turn with Gubaidulina’s Fairytale Poem. Does the clarinet’s trill signal danger? Where will your imagination lead when the marimba scuttles along and a harp burbles away? Scale gentler swells with Debussy’s impressionistic La mer – ‘the sea’ – evocative of Hokusai’s Great Wave.
