Memories: Alan Hirsh









American composer Alan Hirsh wrote this piece in 1993 after seeing the movie Schindlers List. Its a terse but intensely poignant work. Part of what makes it unsettling is its brevity. One senses the music could say more, given the time. Instead, it ends too soon. Considering its extra-musical subject, the transience is disturbingly apt. You can find this piece in Twenty Studies in Fixed Positions for Classic Guitar by Alan Hirsh, published by Mel Bay.
