BRINGING THE WORLDS OF BIRDS AND MUSIC TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME.
(by Michael Green)
A remarkable feast of information, detailing the influence of birds on composers and
musicians around the world over the past millennium, encompassing classical, pop, jazz and present day music and describing changing musical styles with brief composer biographies, sources of influences, especially poetry and delightful original images.
We all have different tastes, but if you enjoy Vaughan Williams’ Lark Ascending, Paul
McCartney’s Blackbird, Duke Ellington’s Bluebird of Delhi or Messiaen’s Catalogue of Birds these are just a few of over 1200 examples of bird influenced music described here.
Extensive research has enabled the author to provide a unique book which will appeal to bird and nature enthusiasts who are fond of music and music lovers who are fascinated by birds. It also provides a hitherto unavailable source of ideas for performers, students of music and drama, authors and playwrights with a series of invaluable appendices.
Available on Amazon (£15.99) and Kindle (£6)
