for trombone trio
or alto trombone, three trombones and tuba (2014)
In July of 2012, a friend of mine committed suicide in Melbourne. She was only 16 years old. Elegy is dedicated to her and everyone else who has died before their time. I chose to use a brass group because these instruments can be beautiful and forlorn and have a tone quality that suits the mood I was trying to create. I wrote this piece in early 2014.
