Elegy was World-premiered by Cellist Joyce Geeting and Concert Pianist Robert Sage at St. Martin-in-The-Fields on March 18th, 2003 and is reprised here in this newly released recording. The work, commissioned by Dr. Geeting, is an offering of love and healing written in the aftermath of September 11th. 'Elegy' begins with the innocence of early morning and ends with the sunrise of the following day. 'Elegy' is both a tribute to those lost and a healing work for those left behind. The work has since been performed numerous times since its premiere. 'Elegy' is currently being orchestrated by the composer into a symphony-length full orchestra Cello Concerto.  Love is never really lost, courage is never really in vain and there will always be a new sunrise.
From the Frontispiece of Elegy (as written by the composer)
