Yehudi Wyner Epilogue (1996),
Composer Note:

Epilogue was commissioned for the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival- Yale Summer School of Music by the Leshowitz Family Foundation and Meet-the-Composer in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Music Shed. It was given its first performance on August 10th, 1996, by the Norfolk Chamber Orchestra, Sidney Harth, conducting. My original intention in planning this piece for the anniversary of the shed at Norfolk was to fashion a celebratory, festive composition, suitable to the place and occasion. Such plans crumbled at the death of Jacob Druckman, esteemed colleague and lifelong friend. Epilogue is in his memory. The mood is somber and elegiac; the style simple and tonal; duration, about eight minutes.
