    The Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, Long Island’s longest-running classical music festival, has something of a water theme. The music of the 12 concerts evokes the festival’s seaside setting with such selections as the Vivaldi concerto subtitled “La tempesta di mare” (“Storm at Sea”); Ravel’s Jeux d’eau (Water Games); Debussy’s Poisson d’or (Gold Fish); Kevin Puts’s Seven Seascape, and Elizabeth Brown's Island Nocturnes.
