Elegy, for Piano
World Premiere: October 4, 1982, Tibor Szasz, Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Albert Glinsky's Elegy for piano might be termed an "elegiac fantasy." It is a classical embodiment of abstracted jazz elements, and is constructed in a basic three-part form (ABA). The Elegy is one of Glinsky's most widely performed pieces.
