Inch Nails – La Mer
term sea refers to certain large bodies of water, but there is
inconsistency as to its precise definition and application. Most
commonly, a sea may refer to a large expanse of saline water
connected with an ocean, but it is also used sometimes of a large
saline lake that lacks a natural outlet, e.g. the Aral Sea.
Colloquially, the term is used as a synonym for ocean.
Additionally, large lakes, such as the Great Lakes, are
occasionally referred to as inland seas.
Monet, "Pyramides de Port-Coton, mer sauvage"
mer, trois esquisses symphoniques pour orchestre (French for The
sea, three symphonic sketches for orchestra), or simply La Mer
Sea), is an orchestral composition (L 109) by the French
impressionist composer Claude Debussy. It was started in 1903 in
France and completed in 1905 on the English Channel coast in
Eastbourne. The premiere was given by the Lamoureux Orchestra
under the direction of Camille Chevillard on 15 October 1905 in
Paris. The piece was initially not well received - partly because
of inadequate rehearsal and partly because of Parisian outrage
over Debussy's having recently left his first wife for the singer
Emma Bardac. But it soon became one of Debussy's most admired and
frequently performed orchestral works, and has become more so in
the ensuing century.
La Mer is widely regarded as one of the greatest orchestral works
of the twentieth century. It is a masterpiece of suggestion and
subtlety in its rich depiction of the ocean, which combines
unusual orchestration with daring impressionistic harmonies.
Several authors have claimed that La Mer sounds like nothing
before it. The work has proven very influential.
