You can learn a lot from the birds, when you’re quiet enough to listen. Each one has its own unique melody, rhythm, timbre, and tune.

The freedom and spontaneity of birdsong has inspired composers across the ages—including many composers today. This Saturday on Second Inversion, we’re listening to the birds. From mourning doves to evening vespers, we’ll hear music written for an entire orchestra of birds. Plus, a piece that brings together birdsongs from all around the globe.

To listen, tune in to Classical KING on Saturday, May 4 at 9pm PT.
