Recording on the CD Violon d'amour
The three movements of the Violin Concerto No. 5 are entitled Amphitrite, Galatea and Thetis, three sea nymphs (female spirits of sea waters in Greek mythology). They symbolise everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea. Their melodious voices sang as they danced around their father Nereus. They were depicted in ancient art as beautiful, young maidens, sometimes running with small dolphins or fish in their hands, or else riding on the backs of dolphins and other sea creatures. They often accompany Poseidon, the god of the sea, and can be friendly and helpful to sailors.
