More (The Sea), Op. 28
The Deep, Deep Sea for alto flute/piccolo, timpani, harp and strings
"As pure sound, this is the best La mer that I have encountered on record. …these are also revelatory performances. Lan Shui and his orchestra… turn in an unequivocally world-class performance of Debussy's masterpiece. Revelatory is again the only way of describing Shui's thrilling espousal of Frank Bridge's The Sea, composed 1910-11, here sounding every inch an unheralded masterpiece. Beijing-born Zhou Long's The Deep, Deep Sea, by contrast, is an altogether more delicate, exotic creation graced by Sharon Bezaly's flute playing. An outstandingly successful issue."
