Notes & Reviews:

A beautiful selection of classical music inspired by our feathered friends! Composers have been inspired by birds and birdsong for generations. Blue tit, robin, lark, nightingale, cuckoo, blackbird and linnet find musical expression alongside exotic pelicans, a bluebird and some imaginary birds.
