There is a way that one’s place of origin gets embedded in the soul. Not only are composers often known for incorporating their cultural musical language – think Sibelius for Finland, Tchaikovsky for Russia, or Bartok for Hungary – but they are also recognized for reflecting the physical landscape of their homeland in music. It should be no surprise, then, that English composers have written significant pieces about the sea. This week’s playlist includes only English composers and their works that take us to the seaside, along with the overtures to two fun musicals with “sea” themes.
