In this studio project, Tiudents (as affectionately knowned by students of Prof. Albert Tiu) perform a kaleidoscopic range of bird-themed piano pieces. To quote American pianist Michael Lewin: "(Birds) speak to freedom, beauty, and the ability to soar free, as Icarus. What could be more liberating than the ability to fly through the air, freed from gravity and human constraints?” Since the beginning of recorded time, birds have inspired literature, poetry, painting and sculpture. From 'The Birds' of Aristophanes to 'The Raven' of Edgar Allan Poe, the carved wooden birds of Africa to the 'Helmeted Bird Monster' sculpture of Hieronymous Bosch, the ancient Chinese Flower-and-Bird paintings to Western Wildlife artists, birds have stimulated creativity in every genre, as they fascinate and enchant.
