This unique quartet came into being through an encounter the Chanteurs d’Oiseaux – Jean Boucault and Johnny Rasse – had with the pianist Shani Diluka and the violinist Genèvieve Laurenceau. Their album evidences the extraordinarily deep and long-lasting tie that links music to the song of birds. In all its infinite variety, birdsong – an age-old and limitless well of inspiration, a source of pure poetry and symbol of freedom – offers a whole new way of listening to the great composers. Echoing Mozart, Casals, Schumann, Saint-Saëns, Grieg, Messiaen, Tchaikovsky and many others, nightingales, chaffinches, warblers and blackbirds add their own music to The Symphony of The Birds.
