Picture of Sheet music  for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano by Malcolm Dedman. This piece addresses the many conflicts in the world and pays homage to those who die innocently as a result of war.

Written in 2009, Elegy for the Casualties of War is for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano, and lasts just over 9 minutes.

The work is in 3 sections played without a break, Andante, Presto and Adagio. With so many conflict zones in different parts of the world, I felt inspired to write an elegy for those people who die unjustly in these circumstances and to remember their families who are left behind.

It is not appropriate to give an analysis of what each section means as I believe that listeners can interpret this for themselves. Just to say that the thoughts I had in mind for the closing bars are that those who have passed on in these circumstances are no longer suffering and, even though they part this world earlier than expected, their souls are being looked after and they are at peace.
