1 Aaron Jay Kernis: Elegy . . . for those we lost [7:07]  

Azica Records announces the September 17, 2021 release of Pulitzer Prize and GRAMMY award-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis' Elegy . . . for those we lost as a single in digital format. This world premiere recording of the work is an arrangement for trumpet and harp performed by Michael Sachs, Principal Trumpet of The Cleveland Orchestra, and multiple GRAMMY-nominated harp soloist, Yolanda Kondonassis. Originally composed for solo piano, Kernis created this work as a powerful tribute to the families of beloved COVID-19 victims, "to give some measure of solace to families within a grief-filled musical poem," according to Kernis.
