The Sea

In Tune’s specially curated playlist takes to the high seas with an eclectic mix of music including Debussy, Britten and Judith Weir.

There's a salty tang to In Tune’s specially curated playlist as we take to the high seas with an eclectic mix of music. The Foggy Morning from Uuno Klami's Sea Pictures gives way to Medtner's Meeresstille, Debussy's little boat is rocked by Judith Weir's Storm and Britten's Peter Grimes. After the tranquility of Vaughan Williams's Full Fathom Five, Korngold's Captian Blood soundtrack sends us one our way in swash-buckling style. Splice the main-brace!
Producer Barnaby Gordon
