Work Overview

Elegy was commissioned and first performed in 2000 by the Australian Youth Orchestra as part of a suite, A Short Hour Unseen. It is an attractive and popular work that has been used in film and theatre, with soaring overlapping melodies and an obsessive, ruminating triadic figure creating a sense of sweet melancholy.
