What does flowing music sound like? The Second Philharmonic Concert is dedicated to the musical aesthetics of the fin-de-siècle. Despite the concrete title La Mer, Debussy does not deliver an exact musical description of the sea in this popular orchestral piece, but renders an abstract impression of water movements, waves and tides through tones. Debussy is also known for his setting of Maurice Maeterlinck’s Pelléas et Mélisande, but Gabriel Fauré had already set his version of the story of the tragic lovers from Greek antiquity four years earlier. In New York, Rachmaninov wrote the piano concerto most resembling a film soundtrack in 1909: his Third, which has come to embody the Russian virtuoso’s compositional style more than any of his other works. Evgeny Kissin is an ideal interpreter of this music.
