for Flute and Piano
Liebermann wrote an emotionally charged Elegy to clarinetist Jon Manasse's late father, Dr. Gustave Manasse, a man who had spent a lifetime in the field of clinical psychology in pursuit of non-pharmacological therapies for the developmentally disabled. The Elegy begins in plaintive reflection, then passes through an extended section of increasing tension-and-resolve before a reprise brings the piece to a wistful close. The premiere in 2013 was by Jon Manasse (clarinet) and Jon Nakamatsu (piano). The composer has also made this arrangement for flute and piano available. For advanced performers.
