      "Le merle noir" was among Olivier Messiaen’s first explorations of birdsong, and Jonathan Harvey’s absorbing "Bird Concerto with Pianosong" uses electronics to mix birdsong with live instruments, performed by Joanna MacGregor, for whom the work was written. The centerpiece of the program, Schubert’s masterful Octet, is a chamber-music symphony filled with lyrical lines worthy of the birds that have inspired so many melodies.
