"Gentle into the Night is a musical epitaph for my dear brother Henry, who died in his sleep quite unexpectedly in January, 1987...The first letter of each movement spells out his name. Highlandia; Elegy; Nocturne; Ragtime; Yearning. Each of the five movements represents a distinct memory of the loving and close relationship we experienced over the years of his life." -Laura Shur, From the Performance Notes by the composer.
