The Ocean Connection

"Incoming Tide, Scarboro Maine," by Winslow Homer (1883)

 

The oceans cover 71 percent of the earth, so it’s not surprising that so many composers have been inspired by the sea—its beauty, its power, its blessings--and its dangers.

In this hour, maritime music by Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Debussy, Ravel and more.
