Thank you for this beautiful compilation and the beautiful music. I have to see it once more because I had to cry.
Will you be so kind to let me know what orchestra this is and the title?
The music is a compilation of a few opuses but the main theme is taken from “Nimrod” by Edward Elgar – not by accident, because the piece tells about the life of a bird from his parents’ courtship and building the nest, through incubating, hatching, growing up, youth, getting to know the world, meeting his partner and setting up his own home.
It is happening on the edge of Amazonian jungle.
One day, when the chicks are already growing up, he comes back home with a pray and finds out the tree, they have built the nest, fallen down, the nest destroyed and his family dead because of the deforesting by humans. He flies over the jungle for a few hours remembering the most beautiful moments of his short life and… puts himself to death crashing of rocks…
It’s a very sad story, but a beautiful music and I invite you to listen all the concert, if you would have the possibility. Listening classical music is wonderful when we know the story and the genesis of the coming into being the opus :)
Thank you for the explanation. It's certainly a very sad story. Now I have to cry double. I thought so the music was a compilation because some partes sounds familiar and I will certainly search for the whole concert.
