Description: The beauty of the nightingale’s song is mimicked by the second flute; the first flute then tries to mimic the mockingbird in an attempt to stop the annoying imitation. They then come together as friends in song, but the true nature of each of the birds ends the work. (original title: The Sparrow and the Mockingbird. Video features flutists Heather Breene and Jennifer Pyne.)
