I wrote this work in 2004. It was performed with narrator and 3 actors in Chinese shadow theater.
Presently, this composition presents a unique opportunity for the presenter of a chamber music series or chamber music ensemble 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 recordings are included ONLY to showcase the music and are 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.
