The Manhattan Requiem was composed on the very day American citizens and the world witnessed the tragedy of September 11th, 2001. The composition is a tribute to those Americans and individuals of different nationalities who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks that occurred.
The composition was originally conceived and written for Piano Quartet, but was subsequently reworked one year later for full String Orchestra with timpani in an expanded form. The work depicts the horror and tragedy of the day through long, drawn-out chord clusters with suspensions. The unison movement of the work portrays a chorale structure, reminiscent of a hymn. The work concludes with layered sections building towards a climax.
