Threnos (lamentation; dirge) was commissioned by Marice Stith and the Cornell University Wind Ensemble in memory of my colleague and friend Brian Israel, a gifted American composer who died of leukemia at the age of thirty-five. The music is dominated by three elements: the forceful arpeggiated gesture heard in the horns at the opening; the constant tolling of bells, both literal (piano, vibraphone, chimes, etc.) and figurate; and a fragment of lament-like melody first heard in the solo oboe near the beginning. At its climax, the music takes up this oboe melody in a full-throated cry of grief. Threnos was completed in January 1988 and first performed March 6 of that year in Ithaca, NY, by the Cornell University Wind Ensemble conducted by Marice Stith.
