The British Love of the Sea
The sea has always held a special allure for the English people. It has served as a pathway for exploration and trade, as well as a symbol of what is most desired in life as well as feared. The sea has affected all the arts in England, and especially music.
On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear works ranging from Vaughan Williams "Sea Symphony" to Benjamin Britten's debut opera "Peter Grimes."
