Description

La Mer on CD

ATMA Classique will reissue it's critically acclaimed recording of La Mer : Debussy, Britten, Mercure in stereo format. Recorded in 2007 by Yannick Nezet-Seguin and the Orchestre Métropolitain, La Mer garnered five stars from the French magazine Diapason, which declared, "What is immediately apparent in Yannick Nézet-Séguin's Debussy is it's meticulousness, it's almost chamber-music like transparency, and it's subtle shading." Pierre Mercure's Kaléidoscope was also praised for it's "formidably contrasted reading... Under Yannick Nézet-Séguin's baton, the work's constantly shifting emotional climate combines tragic grandeur with the most cheerful lightness." La Mer revisits a live concert program performed by the Orchestre Metropolitain during it's 2006-2007 season. "What genius Britten shows in his four interludes from the opera Peter Grimes... Nezet-Seguin recreates the exact context of each scene portrayed, from the depths of the ocean to the sky-shaking tempest... The young conductor ends with Debussy's La Mer... a very impressive performance, sometimes lyric, sometimes livid, always detailed." (La Presse)
