Le Concert des Oiseaux. Vincent Bouchot: Le Carnaval des animaux en péril
La Rêveuse, Florence Bolton, Benjamin Perrot
Harmonia Mundi
Catalogue Number
Release Date
February 10, 2023

While paying glittering homage to the animal kingdom, this programme also takes us on a journey through the centuries: the existing pieces freely inspired by birdsong, from Couperin to Ravel, are mirrored by an astonishing ‘Carnival of Animals in Peril’. Its composer, Vincent Bouchot, reminds us of the disappearance of certain species of animals – and of certain musical instruments that very nearly became extinct too.
