JUN MÄRKL conductor 
INGRID FLITER piano   
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Let the NJSO transport you to a mythical realm in Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun by Debussy, who also conjures the ocean’s moods and majesty in La mer. Pianist Ingrid Fliter is admired for her “grace and heartfelt sincerity” (Gramophone).

DEBUSSY Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune
Languid and sensual, suggesting the erotic reveries of a faun, the half-man, half-goat of Greek mythology.

MENDELSSOHN Piano Concerto No. 1
Blazing and effervescent; a technical marvel and a thrill for the audience!

BRITTEN Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
Moody, foreboding; it captures the ocean at dawn, on Sun morning, under moonlight and during a storm.

DEBUSSY La mer
Vivid and imaginative. As a young boy, Debussy’s parents had wanted him to join the French Navy; instead, he captured his impressions of the ever-changing sea in this work.
