Song of the Nightingale

A while back I posted the opera version of Stravinsky's "The Nightingale", (including a summary of the Hans Christian Andersen story) which was the only version I could find at the time. Now on youtube is the orchestral version, "Song of the Nightingale," my favorite:

Around 5:35 listen for the flute playing the nightingale.

This half starts with the oboe playing the mechanical bird.
