Hakon Borresen – Symphony No. 2 in A Major “The Sea” Op. 7 (1904)

Even as someone who has a particular love for Scandinavian music of the early 20th century, I must confess that Hakon Borresen is not a composer who was familiar to me. Enjoy this symphony of his as you watch the sun set on an alien world…

    The Sea. Fitting theme for someone currently in Caesarea Maritima. Enjoy your trip!

    I hope the group got to chill out in the waters.  It hit 93F in Tel Aviv today.  I’m sure we’ll hear about that.  By the way, this Symphony No. 2 doesn’t emote anything that sounds like, The Sea to my ears.  I think Eric Wolfgang Korngold nails that one with “The Sea Hawk.”  Also, Richard Rodgers masterpiece, “Victory At Sea” makes me long for the ocean when I hear that frothy score.

      Recommendations of Korngold are always welcome and will always meet with my approval! :-)
