From February 17-19, Houston Symphony presents Debussy\u2019s La mer live at Jones Hall. The performance captures the essence of the ocean so completely that you\u2019ll practically smell the salt air and feel the cool splash of waves. It\u2019s one of classical music\u2019s most unforgettable and immersive experiences, whisking the listener through a glowing Impressionistic dreamscape of shimmering beauty and mystical, awe-inspiring power. Fragments of La mer ebb and flow throughout T\u014dru Takemitsu\u2019s haunting concerto for two pianos and orchestra, Quotation of Dream. The conclusion of our Songs of the Earth festival, these concerts also offer the chance to experience Toshio Hosokawa\u2019s breathtaking meditation on nature, Autumn Wind, which features a solo role for the shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute).
