Baroque Birds

The Italian composer Ottorino Respighi was a connaisseur of bird song as well as of baroque music. In 1928 he created a suite for orchestra build on movements by baroque composers imitating bird song. Under the headline “Baroque Birds” Concerto Copenhagen on the 4th of September at 8 PM presents a concert in the Garnisons Church, Copenhagen, featuring the fascination of birds in the baroque period. It will include the prima assoluta of the version I have made for the ensemble of Respighi's “Gli Uccelli” - The Birds.
