Sound Waves comes alive in the third concert with four works all dedicated to the sea. Claude Debussy, the father of Impressionism in music, composed La Mer in the mold of a symphony, but eschewed the traditional title for one more authentic to the sound of the music. French composer Jacques Ibert, the director of French opera in Rome, wrote Escales – a suite for orchestra that perfectly resembles postcards from three Mediterranean ports – after finding his obsession with the sea.
This concert features "Four Sea Interludes" from
Peter Grimes, Op. 33a, by Benjamin Britten, England's finest modern opera composer: composed in 1945, Grimes launched his career in the new post-war era. The gorgeous tone-poem Oceanides, Op. 73, by Jean Sibelius was inspired by the sea-nymphs referenced in Greek mythology: haunting and tempting. The Monterey Symphony provides double performances of a six-concert subscription series at Carmel's Sunset Center. The 2018-2019 season, Sound Waves, will feature major works by great composers, lesser-known works by them and their contemporaries, works by living composers and popular music that uses symphonic instrumentation, all inspired by the ocean. The Monterey Symphony performs with a full orchestra of the most impressive local and regional talent. Each
evening concert ticket includes a pre-concert reception with entertainment, small bites and libations. Saturday
