elegy (no. 4 of four romantic piano pieces) (1985)

Catalogue no:



elegy is the longest and most emotionally attenuated of the four romantic piano pieces, a very personal statement by Reddy drawing on gestures and harmonies from the late 19th-century piano music he loved. Like the other three pieces in the set, it was composed in 1985 directly in pen, hence the frequent crossings out and rather sketchy, provisional notation.
