Debussy’s La Mer

The lineup for this year’s Grant Park Music Festival includes Debussy’s widely beloved La Mer. Although the piece arguably qualifies as a symphony, the composer shied away from that label, preferring the subtitle “Three Symphonic Sketches.” The world-renowned oboist François Leleux takes the stage for Richard Strauss’s Oboe Concerto in D Major, which shares the program along with works by Hindemith and Mendelssohn.
