Elegy (Music for String Orchestra)


Program Note:

My Elegy for String Orchestra is a somber reflection on loss, sorrow, and hope. Although inspired by specific events, the sentiments conveyed in the work are universal, timeless, and invite the listener to embrace often difficult emotions. Through interspersed lines that yield frequently thick polyphony, the listener is offered a contemplative environment in which to reflect through a combination of both simplicity and complexity.
