Willow warbler inspires music

This is a video about a singing willow warbler.

Based on an idea of Dutch cartoonist Peter van Straaten, oboe player Justine Gerretse and composer Henk-Doeke Odinga have written music, based on the song of the willow warbler.

You can hear the composition, for oboe and piano, here.
