This program evokes, through the fascination of men for birds, a certain vision of music in the 17th and 18th centuries, between science, nature and culture.
Birdsong has inspired composers since the dawn of time. The first instruments made by man were flutes and bird calls. But is bird song imitable, and can we compete with birds?
