The fantastic world of nature and art meet to conjure the mystery, beauty and inspiration evoked in Debussy's famed "Prelude a l'apres-midi d' un faune", "Three Nocturnes", and "La Mer" ("The Sea"). This volume of the Naxos Musical Journey takes you on a wondrous tour of the French coast of Brittany and Normandy. Experience astonishing coastal vistas, the haunting King Arthur's cave or the ghostly images of a ship's graveyard. Marvel at masterwork art and sculpture by Rousseau and Degas. From shimmering light on the sea to jagged dramatic coastlines, this evocative visual experience is the perfect complement to the rich drama of Debussy's music.
