Callisto for Horn and Piano

This piece for horn and piano programmatically represents discovery and exploration of the Jovian moon named Callisto. 1) From the void of space, a trumpet and horn sound the pensive theme; 2) With a soft, playful, and thinly scored start, the surface of Callisto is explored; 3) It is well known that Callisto has subterranean seas; Speculation includes abundant life as these subterranean seas are much warmer than the surface, and conducive to life; 4) Back on the surface, the profundity of being in Jupiter’s shadow is evident.
