63. The moods of the sea and a sense of place – Britten: Four Sea Interludes

Some music conjures up a sense of place perfectly and no one has done it better than Benjamin Britten’s depiction of the Suffolk coast of England. Bleak, angry, foreboding and special – this is Four Sea Interludes from the opera Peter Grimes.
