Elegia

Elegia was commissioned by the Prémio Jovens Músicos (Young Musicians Prize), organized yearly by the RTP / Antena 2, a Portuguese television and radio broadcaster. This was the compulsory piece for the semi-finalists of the cello competition in 2007. It is a short piece written as a sorrow over unnecessary loss. The expression of this idea takes various forms in its brief duration: either more externalised, in a louder and faster tone, or more restrained, slow and piano, in seclusion.
