From night skies it’s onto the sparkling sounds of Lisa Illean and Claude Debussy.
Illean’s Land’s End
captures the ever-changing nature of the sea through subtle and gentle music that rolls like waves. A musical Monet, Debussy paints his own delicate impression of the sounds of the sea. Feel the breeze ruffle the ocean as bright young talent Finnegan Downie Dear takes us on a voyage through starlight and salt spray.
