September Elegy for Natural Horn (Optional Valved Horn) and Piano
by Jeffrey Agrell
A tribute to the events and victims of September 9th 2001 when terrorist attacks brought down the twin towers in New York and killed thousands. Written for Natural horn and Piano. The composer uses the natural horn, a traditional instrument, in a modern idiom of improvisation. The natural horn is singularly expressive in it’s wide range of color, timbre and technique and when presented in a largely improvisational idiom makes each performance deeply personal and unique.
