François-Xavier Roth conducts Debussy’s “La Mer”

Sky, sea and light run through this concert with François-Xavier Roth. Les Indes galantes by the Baroque grand master Jean-Philippe Rameau is a seafaring story that leads to South America. In an expressive tone poem, Alexander Scriabin celebrates Prometheus, the bringer of fire, who, like Orion in Kaija Saariaho’s mystical composition, is a traveller between heaven and earth. The concert concludes with Claude Debussy’s tone poem La Mer with its infinite shades of colour.
