The second part of the evening will consist of a performance by the composer, jazz clarinetist and Distinguished Professor of Music and Philosophy, David Rothenberg (Why Birds Sing, 2005; Berlin Bülbül, 2016). Professor Rothenberg specialises in the relationship between art and the natural world, and his performance will emulate the rapturous rhythms of birdsong.
