Enchanted Waters

The roaring power of the ocean is one thing. The magical stillness of lakes, glistening pools and seas at sunset is quite another. The allure of water, of what fairy tales tell us might happen underneath its surface, has induced all manner of musical works that possess their own magic. ‘Art is a figment, a fairytale, a phantom,’ said the Russian composer Anatoli Liadov. His work The Enchanted Lake embodies that description. It opens this playlist and sets the mood for all the music that follows.
