A beguiling, cinematic tapestry of innovative sonorities, Debussy’s 1905 La Mer has long held tremendous influence over the world of composition - and not just in the concert hall. The groundbreaking orchestral techniques that Debussy pioneered with this symphonic work (most noticeably, bringing the woodwinds to the fore, while blending muted brass into the background texture) later became commonplace in film scores throughout the twentieth century. That his portrayal of the ocean remains such a popular work clearly demonstrates the universality of his musical language.
