The Ocean Connection 2

Winslow Homer's "Northeaster"

 

The ocean’s vast expanse and restless rhythms stir the imagination and help us see life with a fresh perspective. That’s true for composers, too—so much so, in fact, that our first time around, we barely touched the surface.

In this hour, more music of the sea, with works by Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, Strauss, and more.
