Set sail with this concert by the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra
To open this special concert on 21 April, the Philharmonic Orchestra will transport the audience to the Thames in London, where they will follow the river procession of King George 1st of England, lulled by Georg Frideric Handel's ceremonial Water Music.
Then it will be time for a storm, with Vivaldi's "La Tempesta di mare." This combines the fiery energy that characterises the composer's works with the unpredictability of the raging waters.
Finally, Jacques Ibert will take us to the edge of the abyss with a Marine Symphony composed for the short film "S.O.S Foch," from film director Jean Arroy – a dramatic documentary on the rescue of a cargo ship in distress on a wild sea.
A delightful programme in which the silence of the water is expressed in music.
