La mer, Debussy

Muti Conducts Scriabin

7:30 PM
Mendelssohn, Debussy, Scriabin
Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Scriabin’s highly dramatic symphony The Divine Poem is lavishly orchestrated with an exuberant sense of heroic striving. Riccardo Muti, a masterful Scriabin interpreter, combines this luscious piece with two portraits of the sea: Mendelssohn’s illustrative overture Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage and Debussy’s lustrous La mer, which captures the sea’s moods from mist-shrouded dawn through sun-dappled waves to the fury of a storm.


  • Mendelssohn Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage Overture
  • Debussy La mer
  • Scriabin The Divine Poem
