Elegy, for orchestra (2011) – 7'

Elegy is not intended to lament anything or anyone, but to be an elegy in character, with dark, thorny harmonies framing a more peaceful central section. The melody at the beginning provides the thematic material for Elegy, along with a countermelody introduced in the flutes. Throughout the piece runs a pedal point on Db or C#, in many instruments and registers.


Recording by the Festival Orchestra at the Tennessee Valley Music Festival, conducted by Rafael Antonio Rodriguez
