La Mer

I've just arrived in Cabo San Lucas, it is quite a picturesque place. As for composers who painted with their music, Claude Debussy stands as an important voice. And we are celebrating his 150th Anniversary today. In the early 1900's Debussy composed an orchestral work depicting the sea, a musical score full of color, dreamy textures, and memorable melodies. Have a listen to Claudio Abbado's performance of La Mer with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra here. 

The Sea. Cabos San Lucas, Mexico.
