Birds and Music - a violinist's view


Birds and Music - a violinist's view

Paul Barritt

Musicians have long found inspiration for their work in the natural world and in turn, music is a means by which humans can express their feelings about nature and the world in general.

Join us today as classical violinist, Paul Barritt, Permanent Guest Leader of the Hallé Orchestra, explores the use of birds, their image, calls and sounds in classical music in a talk complete with musical examples both electronic and live.

Linnean Lunchtime Lectures are free and open to all. Doors open at 12:00 and tea and coffee will be served in the library following the event.
