Yizkor, which means “remembrance” in Hebrew. It is Judaism’s memorial prayer (the voice that cries, the voice that is heard no more). I had written the movement “Lento” in 2001 after the horrific events of 9/11. Later, in 2009, I added the “Allegro” and “Andante” to reflect what happened before this movement. However, the performer can play the movements in the order of his/her choice.
