Sounds of the Sea

The sea has always challenged and inspired composers, and in this concert, the young Finnish conductor Taavi Oramo takes the HK Phil on a fantastic ocean voyage through the imaginations of composers ranging from Sibelius to Takemitsu and John Williams – and ending with Debussy's masterpiece La mer.
