For the Birds
From cuckoos to blackbirds, nightingales to goldfinches, composers as far back as the 14th century have been fascinated by avians. FOR THE BIRDS showcases this fascination in a program of works curated by CSMF Artistic Director Linda Chesis and inspired by birds and birdsong. The centerpiece of the program is Robert Sirota’s BIRDS OF PARADISE, which features footage from the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. In addition to works by Vaughan Williams and Messiaen, concertgoers will also hear the world premiere of Sirota’s arrangement of the Beatles classic “Blackbird.” Featuring performances by Chesis, Alexandre Moutouzkine, piano, Chloe Kiffer, violin and other special guests.
