Martis Observatio in Leone (2012)

for piano and chamber orchestra
(1 Fl, 1 Ob, 1 Cl, 1 Bs, 2 Hns, 1 Tpt, 1 Tbn, 5 Vln I, 5 Vln II, 5 Vla, 4 Vc, 2 Cb, 1 perc.)

This is a small piano concerto for a rather moderate-sized orchestra. It was inspired by my observations of the planet Mars during its aphelic opposition to Earth in the first months of 2012 (and also - guilty as charged - by some readings of Edgar Rice Burroughs's A Princess of Mars).
