Locked down in Philadelphia, violinist Elena Urioste and her pianist husband Tom Poster invited people on social media to send in requests for pieces they could arrange and film themselves playing.
Here, as a belated 21st birthday present for cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who asked if we might arrange some Bob Marley for him, they’re playing the song Three Little Birds, whose optimistic message they say, ’feels all the more poignant these days.’. They’ve also smuggled in seven other composers’ pieces inspired by birds and birdsong. See how many you can spot.
