The Birds’ concert & The carnival of The Carnival of the endangered animals

Harmonia Mundi - 2023

A brilliant homage to animals, this program takes us on a journey through the centuries: to the ancient pages freely inspired by the song of birds from Couperin to Ravel, answers an astonishing Carnival of Animals in Peril. The composer Vincent Bouchot makes us aware of the disappearance of certain species of animals… as well as of certain musical instruments, which almost disappeared as well.
