Morehead, Patricia: Elegy for Clarinet & Piano

Elegy is an outpouring of emotion concerning a close relative who has an incurable mental disorder. Through the composition of the piece the composer was able to express her anguish for this individual. The piece is constructed over a five note cantus firmus which serves to unify the work. Elegy was composed in 1996. The music was originally written for English horn and piano and was transcribed for clarinet, alto saxophone, and viola by the composer. Ms. Morehead has studied with Ralph Shapey, John Eaton, Shulamit Ran and Dr. Samuel Dolin. She has served on the faculty of Roosevelt University in composition, theory and oboe, and is currently professor of composition and music history at Columbia College in Chicago.
