La Mer with BBC National Orchestra of Wales

  • St. David's Hall Cardiff Wales (map)

Join the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for their 'La Mer' Concert at St. David's Hall, Cardiff.
Debussy’s music of water, wind and light surrounds colourful works by composers at different ends of their lives. Mozart’s 27th piano concerto was to be his last, yet despite its subdued qualities, the finale is based on a song welcoming the summer. Messiaen’s meditation for orchestra dates back to his early years after leaving conservatoire. It’s a stunningly beautiful work that foreshadows a lifelong devotion to the mystical connection between music and faith.

Claude Debussy - Nocturnes (Featuring Chamber Choir from Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in the third movement)
