It's the untold story of a famed composer’s relationship with his pet bird. In Mozart's Starling, Lyanda Lynn Haupt pieces together details scattered throughout letters, biographies, and musical folklore to paint a fully-fledged narrative of the composer and his unlikely companion. Putting an even more personal stamp on the book, Lyanda weaves in her own unique experience of raising her pet starling Carmen, who has truly become part of her family after saving her from an ill-fated nest sweep in the park. She joined us to talk about this fascinating story and these remarkable birds.
