Product details

Elegy was written for and is dedicated to Peter Harthoorn, a friend who died without warning in early 1985. The work is cast in a single movement with the following four sections : (i) reaction, (ii) reflection, (iii) rhythmic explosion, (iv) elegy proper.

The "reaction" is my own response to the news of Peter's death. The "reflection" is in part a resumé of Peter's character and life, leading to the cathartic "explosion" of both death and its acceptance.
