A Night with the Birds

Join us for an exciting evening of music inspired by birds of every feather, from the naughty Missa entre vous filles by Lassus, to Jonathan Dove’s exciting setting of Who killed Cock Robin, taking in madrigals by Vautor, Bartlet, Janequin and Arcadelt, and Stanford’s The blue bird and Vaughan Williams’s The turtle dove along the way.  The acclaimed Anglo-Russian pianist and composer Alissa Firsova will be playing two bird-themed solos by Messiaen, Le Merle bleu (from Catalogue d’Oiseaux) and La Colombe, and Balakirev‘s The Skylark.
