Contes Marins

Claude Debussy once said that if he hadn’t been a musician, he would have become a sailor; he loved the sea. For as long as classical music has existed, composers have attempted to capture the sea in music.

The sea ocean embodies all the moods that inspire composers in their symphonies, tone poems, operas and ballets—the tempestuous storms, the blissful calms, the surging waves, and the rippling, glistening, undulating textures emerging from the ever-changing whims of the weather.

“Contes Marins” is an upcoming piano album by Anna Bondareva, which is going to be released on the 23rd of March!

Music is a visceral and an intimate expression but it’s also something external to her. It’s her relation to her surroundings, her connection to her past and generation, nature forces and spirit. New album includes nine compositions: Rhapsody, Promenade, Berceuse, Canon, Cantate, Bagatelle, Capriccio, Sarabande and Rondeau.
