Birds in Music
In a fascinating centuries-spanning program, Pierre-Laurent Aimard explores the many recreations of birdsong in music by a diverse range of composers from the Baroque to the present day, including music by Daquin, Schumann, Ravel, Bartók, and Julian Anderson. The centerpiece will be a selection from Messiaen's monumental Catalogue of the Birds, to be interspersed with electronic works by French composer Bernard Fort incorporating the same bird calls. • Purchase Ticket
