Set complert -    Elegy fou escrita mentre el seu compositor era membre de la MacDowell Colony. Fou escrita en memòria d’un antic alumne del Sr Niblock a la Michigan State University. Aquest jove violinista, Al Desiderio, juntament amb els membres de la US Navy Orchestra/Band van morir tràgicament en un accident d’avió sobre la Badia de Rio de Janeiro.

Com que Al Desiderio era nadiu de Philadelphia, era pertinent que ELEGY fos interpretada per primer cop pel conjunt AMERITA, dirigit pel seu antic professor de violí (Sr. Frank Costanzo) i format pels membres de l’orquestra de Philadelphia.

ELEGY ha estat interpretada en diverses ocasions, tant com a peça de concert com també en oficis commemoratius.


The Elegy was written while the composer was a fellow at the MacDowell Colony. It was written in memory of Mr. Niblock's former student at Michigan State University. This young violinist, Al Desiderio, along with all of the touring members of the US Navy Orchestra / Band were tragically killed in a plane crash over the Bay at Rio de Janeiro.(1960)
Because Al  Desiderio was a native of Philadelphia, it was fitting that the ELEGY was first performed by the AMERITA  ensemble,  directed by his former violin teacher (Mr. Frank Costanzo) and consisting of members of the Philadelphia orchestra.  

ELEGY has been performed many times both as a concert piece as well as for memorial services.
