In memoriam (Moore)

In memoriam (Moore)

In memoriam is symphonic poem by the American composer Douglas Moore.Moore wrote the piece in 1943 in memory of the young soldiers who died in World War II. In memoriam is Moore's darkest work and contrast 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.
