Debussy La mer

8:00 PM
Sibelius, Stravinsky, Adès, Debussy
Saturday, October 19, 2013

A major landmark of twentieth-century music, Debussy’s portrait of the sea in all its moods, from mist-shrouded dawn to the fury of a storm, inspired many other composers, including Sibelius’s brilliant, eerie music to The Tempest. Stravinsky’s playful Violin Concerto, featuring magnetic violinist Leila Josefowicz, and Adès’s brooding and magical ...but all shall be well are illuminating companions to these atmospheric works.

The October 19 concert is a part of our POST series–$35 tickets include a 21+ after-concert lounge. Use promo code POST at checkout!
