7:30 p.m. Morrison Center. “The Sea” is a program inspired by the music of nature. Two musical interpretations of the seas remind us how powerful sound can be in creating unforgettable images of the forces of nature. Britten’s beautiful and foreboding Four Sea Interludes, extracted from his opera Peter Grimes, transports us to dawn, morning, moonlight and an unrelenting storm at sea. Debussy’s impressionistic La Mer reveals the luminous and atmospheric mysteries of the sea. Elgar’s Enigma Variations pays tribute to the composer’s wife and friends through a series of variations based on an original theme.
