(In Memoriam, September 11, 2001)Eric Ewazen - Southern Music Company
A solo trumpet sets the somber tone that is the essence of this solemn, dignified work. According to the composer, who was teaching in New York City at the time the events unfolded, this work is intended to be a memorial "for all the lost souls who are gone from this life but are forever treasured." The profound sense of loss and extreme gravity of the situation are given a voice in this musically rich and emotionally stirring composition, displaying the power of music to portray so well things that are not easily put into words.
