commissioned by

Bay Brass

premiered by

Based on a earlier piece for string quartet, Elegy was written for the Bay Brass in 2009.  I composed the original version at the request of Barry Jekowsky, Music Director and founder of the Walnut Creek-based California Symphony, in memory of our friend Dr. Stanton Schwartz who was an avid supporter of the orchestra for which I had the great honor of serving as Young American Composer-in-Residence from 1996-1999. I would like to thank Robert Ward, composer and hornist in the group, for his invaluable expertise and advice in this arrangement.
