Programme Note
Richard Danielpour A Child’s Reliquary (for piano trio) (2000)
Composer Note:

I know of nothing more tragic or heartbreaking than the death of a child. The inspiration for A Child’s Reliquary (Piano Trio) came from the untimely and tragic death of Cole Carsan St. Clair, the 18-month-old son of Carl and Susan St.Clair. The work was intended as a kind of Kindertotenlieder without words—and everything in the piece, including references to the Brahms Cradle Song—relates to its initial inspiration. Work on A Child’s Reliquary began on August 19, 1999, and was completed on September 17th of the same year. The work was written expressly for Jaime Laredo, Sharon Robinson, and Joseph Kalichstein and is dedicated to the memory of Cole Carsan St. Clair.
