Music Around Town

Debussy's La Mer

When: Thu., Feb. 23 2017

Ever since he visited the Mediterranean when he was a child, composer Claude Debussy loved the ocean. He channeled La Mer, a piece that reflects the way in which the sea can be both stormy and tranquil. Tonight at 7:30 at Severance Hall, the Cleveland Orchestra plays the piece along with selections by Pintscher, Saint-Saëns and Schoenberg. An hour before the performance, speaker Rose Breckenridge, administrator and lecturer for the Cleveland Orchestra Music Study Groups, gives the pre-concert talk, “Exotic Views.” Performances repeat at 11 a.m. tomorrow (minus the Schoenberg) and at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets start at $29. (Niesel)
