“Androcles and the Lion (chamber version)”
for Flute/Piccolo, Oboe/English Horn, Clarinet, Bassoon, French Horn, Percussion, String Quartet, Double Bass
In 2003 I composed a 42 minute work based on the Aesop fable Androcles and the Lion, for 11 instruments, narrator and 3 actors in Chinese theater. Presently, this composition presents a unique opportunity for the presenter of a chamber music group or series to collaborate with the composer to design an entirely new production for the concert hall. The copyright for the music is owned by the composer and is available for performance. The composer will work with a presenter to select an author to create a new story, based upon Aesop’s fable or utilizing fresh material, for presentation by a narrator with or without a more elaborate production. NOTE: The attached audio recording is included ONLY to showcase the music and is unavailable for any commercial or non-commercial use. The story and narration included on the recording are owned by the author and both are unavailable for performance. There will be NO opportunities to either purchase or rent scores or parts.
