BSO Off the Cuff: Impressionist Masterworks
Friday, January 12, 2018, 8:15pm
The Music Center
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra:
Off the Cuff
Marin Alsop, Music Director
Debussy // La Mer
Ravel // La Valse
Waves of sound crash through the hall during Debussy's La Mer in this concert presented in partnership with the Baltimore Museum of Art. Ravel describes the “whirling” patterns of La Valse as, “Swirling clouds afford glimpses, through rifts, of waltzing couples.” Yet this waltz may have a darker side: a world war, the death of a loved one and a ballet never danced. Discover many influences of these impressionist masterworks.
