Told through two dozen uninterrupted songs, Elegies is composer William Finn's reflection on the loved ones he has lost throughout his life. From next door neighbors to his mother to his partner's ex-lover to Joe Papp, Finn vividly, touchingly, and sometimes humorously paints the picture of these characters that have had such an impact on his development. Culminating in a series of songs about September 11th, Elegies ultimately reminds us that "the living was the prize, the ending's not the story."
