The Parliament of Fowls
The mp3 files below are simply the Sibelius playback and are not live performances, but they give adequate approximations of the opera. The mp3 of the Introduction demonstrates the movement with string quartet instead of a string ensemble. All other selections are with full string ensemble. Please contact the composer for more information about availability of score and parts.
