Music by Robert Gross, Vol. I

Here are some pieces of music by me.

Shuttlecraft Chase is a piece of filmic orchestral music depicting a dogfight between two warring shuttlecraft in outer space.  It is performed here by the City of Prague Orchestra.

Surreal Fields is a single-movement piece for string quartet, read here by the Penderecki Quartet.

Epitaph is an electroacoustic work with a political bent: it is an epitaph for the eight miserable years of the George W. Bush administration.

Elijah is a jazz orchestra piece, written for Satinder Kaur’s film Elijah.

Apartment 13 is a jazz tune with a groove in 13/8.

Guitar Concerto is a MIDI realization of my Concerto for Electric Guitar and String Orchestra, which was written for guitarist Chris Pinnick, formerly of the band Chicago.

Time Does Not Bring Relief is a short art song on a text by Edna St. Vincent Millay, sung by Brooke Gibson.

Did I See the Devil is a short art song on a text by me, modeled on Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.
