Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Renowned conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen rehearses Debussy's "La Mer" with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and music lovers are afforded the rare opportunity to see musical magic in the making as the cameras roll inside of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion to capture a masterpiece performance in the making. A relaxed composer and conductor whose notable lack of pretension allows him to form a close bond with the performers, Salonen is also interviewed in his L.A. home about the many challenges faced while adapting Debussy's acclaimed composition.
