Shani Diluka (piano)
Genevieve Laurenceau (violin)
Jean Boucault (birdsong artist)
Johnny Rasse (birdsong artist)


This unique quartet came into being through an encounter the chanteurs d’oiseaux, Jean Boucault and Johnny Rasse, had with pianist Shani Diluka and violinist Genèvieve Laurenceau. Their album illustrates 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 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'.
