In Memoriam for euphonium and pianoPiano and single partDifficulty: mediumNDV 4268C
In Memoriam was written in 2017 in memory of my aunt Janice Lester, who passed away from early onset Alzheimer's the previous year.
As the disease progressed, many memories and people faded from her mind, however, her love of music never went away.
She always adored hearing me play slow melody pieces on my euphonium, and even in the late stages of Alzheimer's, her eyes lit up as I played various works at her bedside in the assisted living home.
Here, I attempt to convey her Iove of melodic writing along with the beauty of her kind, loving personality.
