Pieces of Tomorrow: La Mer
- Sofia Gubaidoelina Der Zorn Gottes
- Claude Debussy La mer
Who has not had a poster of a French impressionist on their wall for a while, when they were young? Monet, Renoir or Cézanne, for example? Claude Debussy was also in that corner. In 1905 he wrote La Mer. In it he 'tone-painted' three sea sketches with comparable vagueness. Delicate and subtle. He used the enormous orchestra to compose hundreds of nuances, never to make noise.
This is different in the other piece on the menu: Der Zorn Gottes (God's Wrath) by Sofia Gubaidulina. During the Corona Lockdown, the 90-year-old recluse composer worked hard and cinematically to make it clear that God is angry with us. A spicy contrast.
