Birds and Birdsong
Rob Cowan's Sunday selection concerns itself with birds and birdsong, through the musical prism of such composers as Vaughan Williams, Vivaldi, Beethoven and Liszt. His theme and variations of the day are by Max Reger, in his variations and fugue on a theme of J. A. Hiller. The Telemann cantata this week is Deine Toten werden leben, TVWV 1:213.
