Program Notes:

After the events of September 11, I was unable to continue working on the piece that I was writing; suddenly, like so many things for so many people, it was incongruent to where my mind and heart were at. In many ways, writing this elegy was a selfish act, an act of personal catharsis. (And I am hardly alone - artists everywhere are doing this.) In the end, the hope is always that the work will help others, too, in some small way.
