Debussy & The Mermaid

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of the mermaid who sacrifices herself out of unrequited love for a prince, Zemlinsky’s The Mermaid is a lavishly scored underwater fantasy. Debussy’s illustrative The Sunken Cathedral depicts the submerged sanctuary of a lost Atlantis, replete with chanting priests and chiming bells. The two nautical works are paired with Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, a work of lyrical beauty and emotional sincerity with dance-like themes and sweet melodic lines, played by the virtuosic Philippe Quint.
