In memoriam (Moore)
|This article does not cite any sources. (August 2008) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)|
Moore wrote In memoriam in 1943 in memory of the young soldiers who died in World War II. It is Moore's darkest work and contrasts strongly with the ebullient Symphony in A major, which was written two years later. Most of the music is very elegiac as befits the piece. The premiere was given by Howard Hanson in early 1944.
