A Musical Bestiary

Today we are fea­tur­ing pieces of music that relate to the ani­mal king­dom: a “Musi­cal Bes­tiary” after the idea of medi­ae­val man­u­scripts describ­ing var­i­ous wild beasts, both real and imag­i­nary. The result is an excep­tion­al­ly broad col­lec­tion of musi­cal styles and gen­res, from Flan­ders & Swann to The Great Ani­mal Orches­tra.
