Elegy, for violin and piano was written in the spring of 2000 and was the last piece I composed as a graduate student at the Eastman School of Music. The work is essentially a brief, but very colorful ‘song’ for violin and piano. I have always been very interested in the use of color as an expressive musical device. When thematic and harmonic materials return, they are often altered in texture and timbre. Just as in life, the music never merely repeats itself, but instead goes through subtle changes. Elegy is a quiet and delicate piece, and though the violin has some arioso moments in the piece, the violin and piano essential work together as one.
