Explore birdsong and man’s relationship with the natural world, in this Aurora Orchestra concert.

Continuing its pioneering Orchestral Theatre series, Aurora Orchestra is joined by Pierre-Laurent Aimard, giving his first appearance as Southbank Centre Associate Artist, in Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques.
