Britten’s Four Sea Interludes depicts foreboding ocean moods and a vicious storm. Takemitsu’s I hear the water dreaming, featuring Principal Flute Robert Langevin as soloist, portrays the role of water in an Australian aboriginal myth. John Luther Adams’s Become Desert dramatizes one of the many consequences of human activity on our planet. The composer regards the work as “both a celebration of the deserts we are given, and a lamentation of the deserts we create.”
