About

Through the centuries, composers have brought colour and panache to bear in their depictions of animals in music. For some, such as Sibelius, animals become the central focus in their tone poems, whilst for others a symphonic unity is sought, as Beethoven showed in his ‘Pastoral’ Symphony.

Poetic imagery, through song, offers another avenue. The rich variety of the animal kingdom – from bees to birds, from fleas to fish (and much else) – offers memorable opportunities for sonic richness.
