“La Mer”: Water music with the Berliner Philharmoniker
Whether it’s the calm of the sea, a gently flowing river or a mighty storm on the ocean, our playlist shows how water in its various forms has inspired composers to write great works from the Baroque to the modern era. The selection presents, among others, Handel’s Water Music, Smetana’s immortal Moldau, dazzling pieces by Debussy and Ravel and – in a performance conducted by Kirill Petrenko – Rachmaninov’s tone poem The Isle of the Dead.
