Christian Spring (CD phontastic) swissmusic

For this programme, Zurich animal lover Christian Spring set out on a very particular quest; apart from the well-known bird pieces by great composers, he discovered over a hundred forgotten or elusive songsters. His selection includes musical rarities by such composers as Agathe Backer-Grondahl, Lola Beranova, Serge Bortkiewicz, Benjamin Godard, Templeton Strong, Alberto Williams or Arthur Willlner. Double CD.
