Remembering Achille-Claude Debussy ,(August 22, 1862–March 25, 1918), known since the 1890,s as Claude-Achille Debussy or Claude Debussy,was a French composer and pianist.

Debussy called his work „three symphonic sketches,” avoiding the loaded term symphony; yet the work is sometimes called a symphony; it consists of two powerful outer movements framing a lighter, faster piece which acts as a type of scherzo.

„La Mer” is divided inot three movements:

1. „De l’aube à midi sur la mer” (from dawn to midday on the sea);

2. „Jeux de vagues” (Play of the Waves);

3. „Dialogue du vent et de la mer” (Dialogue of the wind and the sea).

Conductor: Vladimir Ashkenazy & Cleveland Orchestra
