Elegiac MotivesBy Donald Coakley Concert Band Conductor Score & Parts Grade: 3 Item: 81-CB2039
Elegiac Motives was commissioned in memory of David McGovern who died tragically at the beginning of his teenage years. The work is based on the tone row D-A-D-C-G-E, which are the note related letters in David's name. Derivatives and harmonic material used in the work are generated from the row. This piece combines both a reflective feel as well as sections of youthful energy.
