The Sea – at times bewitchingly calm and reflective, at times mercilessly tempestuous and ferocious – has long been a point of fascination and a source of inspiration for generations of composers. Set sail on an invigorating voyage with Hong Kong Sinfonietta and conductor Roberto Forés Veses at Sea Interludes, where the waves of Thomas Adès’ and Britten’s music lull you and challenge you, until they morph into the soaring silhouette of the Alps – an equally dramatic and hauntingly beautiful force of nature – in Brahms’ beloved Symphony No 1.
