The Nightingale and the Emperor, a chinoiserie written by someone who has never been to China, offers plenty of food for thought and provides an opportunity to hear the vanished instruments so dear to 18th-century birdwatchers and bird lovers, the bird flageolets. This tale also takes a contemporary look at the relationship between man and beast, at a time when biodiversity is under threat and birds are gradually disappearing from our soundscape.
