Debussy La Mer

Danish conductor Thomas Søndergård returns to the TSO to lead a program that includes two different but equally beguiling French works—Debussy’s majestic portrait of the sea in all its moods, and a tart, playful fairy-tale dance score by Poulenc. Latvian violinist Baiba Skride brings her stirring artistry to the forceful concerto that Benjamin Britten composed as the Second World War loomed. (Pictured: Baiba Skride, violin)
