(saxophone quartet version)
Elegy is an arrangement for saxophone quartet of the slow movement (also titled Elegy) of my Duo Sonata for clarinet and alto saxophone. In its original version, Elegy was composed in memory of those who died in the tragedy on September 11, 2001. The current versions exists for all those who wish to remember a loved one lost for any reason.
“Gregory Wanamaker’s Elegy, a tribute to the victims of 9/11, was the highlight of the first half. It is an achingly beautiful work, with harmonic tensions resolving like a high Renaissance motet.”
