Here’s something a bit different for this week’s Sunday Music, Olivier Messiaen’s composition of exotic birds for piano and small orchestra. If you’re not a fan of classical music, I’ve attached another video below as a kind of footnote. There Messiaen explains some of the different sounds he used in the composition. He speaks with such wild enthusiasm about this piece that it will certainly make the performance even more enjoyable.
