Editor's info:
The bulk of La mer was composed during a visit to Burgundy – a long way from the nearest sea – although the work was completed in the English seaside town of Eastbourne. The composer himself argued that his inspiration was drawn from a range of ocean view paintings and from literature in which the sea played a major part. Debussy described the work as 'Three symphonic sketches for orchestra' (Trois esquisses symphoniques pour orchestre), thus avoiding the term 'symphony', which would have imposed a specific musical structure, as well as the expression 'symphonic poem', which would imply that the music was descriptive in nature. 'Sketches' was a wise choice, precisely because it neatly conveys that the music is meant to do no more than provide an impression.

Whereas Debussy occupied himself spontaneously and intuitively with looking for new sounds, Ravel placed much more emphasis on the effect that the sounds could have in the context of a musical story.

One of these dazzling impressionist tales was the suite Mother Goose (Ma mere l’Oye). Between 1908 and 1910, he wrote a simple suite of piano pieces for four hands for the children of some friends, inspired by a few fairy tales that he took in part from the Tales of Mother Goose by Charles Perrault. Albeit the music was not technically difficult, the subtlety of the sound and melodies imbued the work with extreme refinement. This became clearly evident when he subsequently arranged to work for orchestra, refining the music even further with the larger orchestral sound palette. Ravel used this orchestral version in 1912 for a ballet.

Het Gelders Orkest
Driven by musical ambition, inspired by our public and attached to our environment. That is Het Gelders Orkest! We share our passion for classical music with people of all ages in Gelderland and beyond. We perform famous and lesser-known works, and appear with world-renowned soloists, young stars and great guest conductors. Our musicians grow and shine under the direction of chief conductor Antonello Manacorda. As a youthful ‘old soul’, his ability to fuse the emotions of the audience and the orchestra is second to none. Het Gelders Orkest strives to touch as many people as possible. That is why we organise not only symphonic concerts but also a surprising array of alternative musical encounters and adventurous crossovers, in the form of children’s concerts, educational and amateur projects, films and workshops.

Antonello Manacorda
Antonello Manacorda is currently Artistic Director of Kammerakademie Potsdam, a position he has held since 2010, and Principal Conductor of Het Gelders Orkest in The Netherlands since 2011. He was Principal Conductor of I Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan from 2006-10.

A prolific opera and symphonic conductor, Manacorda has worked with many of the leading ensembles and opera houses. Recent highlights have included Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Gothenburg Symphony, Helsinki Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, Teatro la Fenice, Swedish Chamber Orchestra and his debut at the Salzburg Mozartwoche with the Mozarteumorchester in a performance Schubert’s Alfonso und Estrella. In February 2014 he conducted a Beethoven Cycle over four consecutive days in Potsdam with Kammerakademie Potsdam, and is also a regular guest every year at the Concertgebouw with Het Gelders Orkest.
