Duration
12 minutes
Genre
Modern classical music

"In Remembrance, September 11,2001" was commissioned by the Euphouria Tuba/Euphonium Quartet and was premiered by them at the 2002 International Tuna/Euphonium Conference. It was adapted for band during 2002. The composition reflects the composer’s feelings about the tragic events of that fateful day. The first movement, "Fanfares To Fallen Heroes", is a tribute to the brave firemen, policemen and rescue workers who tirelessly and fearlessly risked and sacrificed their lives in order to save the lives of others. The movement is permeated with fanfare motives that reflect both the bravery displayed and the danger that these people faced. The second movement, "Elegy To The Innocent", is a tribute to all the innocent victims and their loved ones who have suffered at the hands of the terrorists. The outer sections have a dirge-like rhythm underpinning a sorrowful melody. The middle section contrasts the dirge by giving a sense of comfort to all that have suffered. The third movement, "Justice", represents the struggle and resolve of the United States of America and its allies to eliminate terrorism. Battle motives alternate with a heroic theme throughout the movement. The last movement, "Prayer For Peace", represents a hope that all the people of the world can achieve the tolerance and understanding we need to live in harmony and in a civilized manner. The chaconne form is used to represent the uniting of voices as the prayer grows in intensity from beginning to end.
