The measured steps of a funeral march pace through this work, composed during World War I; yet it is much more than a cortège. It begins with a cry of pain, its harsh harmonies still retaining some beauty, thanks to Casella’s masterful scoring. Beauty and pain of another kind characterize the lullaby a mother sings to her dead son, a tune evoked again and again in the course of the work. The Elegia eroica has – sadly – lost none of its topicality to this day; it is at once timeless and timely music.
