'n Ou Duitse kinderliedjie wat ons almal ken

Rautavaara: Cantus Arcticus (1972)

Lees meer oor hierdie interessante komposisie:

Why imitate birds in music when you can use the real thing? Rautavaara's 'concerto for birds and orchestra', as it's subtitled, uses taped birdsong throughout, taking Respighi's idea one step further. The Finnish composer headed off on a field trip to near the Arctic Circle (hence the title) and to the marshlands of Liminka in Northern Finland to record the calls of a whole host of birds. Listening to is like stepping into an avian paradise, with the melancholy song of the shore larks as unforgettable as the migrating whooper swans. The bird calls are juxtaposed with a lush orchestral score.

Oor nagtegale

In die stukkie "Nagtegale", is daar nog musiek oor voëls, maar in dié geval natuurlik net  oor nagtegale.

Die "Blue Crane" Restaurant in die Austin Roberts Voëlreservaat in die hartjie van Pretoria, waar daar die mooiste watervoëls te sien is.

Kan iemand dalk sê die datums klop nie... Die datums wat op foto's is en die ouderdom wat sy behoort te wees, werk nie lekker saam nie. Kan iemand dalk help?
