Philharmonia Orchestra & Thomas, Michael Tilson – “Debussy: La Mer / Nocturnes” – [CBS Records]

Hemroid The Leader   11/15/2016   12-inch, Classical

San Francisco Symphony conductor Michael Tilson Thomas in 1976, conducting London’s Philharmonia Orchestra & Ambrosian Singers through Claude Debussy’s (DEB-u-see) La Mer and Nocturnes.
La Mer is an ode to the sea but also an attempt at a symphony. The usual narrative of a symphony is dispensed with. A vast seascape.
Nocturnes are 3 separate parts, often programmed with just the first two. Clouds, Parties, Sirenes.
