Elegie was originally composed as a piano piece. I wanted to see what it sounded like in an orchestral setting, so I transcribed it for orchestra.
Elegie (Elegy) is a term for a "pensive" musical offering--a piece denotating sorrow or lament. In this case, I offer it on the Fourth to reflect the sorrows of past and present as our world tries to "get-it-all-together."
The instrumentation is:
piccolo. 2 flutes, oboe, harp, celesta, and full strings with the AG string samples to provide extra emphasis at designated points.
