Program notes

Experience and enjoy in a completely new way the great works of classical music, from the Baroque to the modern period, thanks to a series of 20 audio-visual concert guides, Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music.

Debussy's La Mer is a masterpiece of suggestion and subtlety in its rich depiction of the ocean. Several authors have claimed that La Mer sounds like nothing before it. As a specialist in French Impressionism, the British pianist and writer Paul Roberts – also known from the BBC television series Play It Again – introduces Debussy's work with great passion to the viewers.
