Kirk Trevor’s Comments

» Comments on In Memory – H.H.L.

“After the first read-through of In Memory –H.H.L. I realized we had found a worthy successor to the Barber Adagio. Here was a gorgeously crafted Adagio for Strings that had a new voice, but with the same hauntingly lush harmonies and intensity that makes the string orchestra such a beautiful vehicle in the concert hall. After recording it, I was even more convinced that In Memory H.H.L. has a real place in the standard string orchestra literature. As a conductor we are often looking for that five minute adagio to fit into our programming, and now we have a second option to the Barber from a wonderful living American composer.”
