In Memory (2020)
Arr. for Solo Horn
Composed April 2020
Commissioned by Will White
Horn version premiered and recorded by David Cooper, associate principal horn, Los Angeles Philharmonic
This piece wasn't written about a specific time or person. It is meant to be a contemplation of memories past, which could be anything the listener/player desires - the viola acts as the voice that recalls these memories and reflects on them with tranquil, yet occasionally tumultuous introspection. Thus, this composition can speak to and work in any occasion.
This version was arranged especially for and dedicated with admiration to David Cooper.
