Marshall Fine - Music in Homage (1991)
To those who knew him, Marshall Fine (1956-2014) seemed to spend much of his life tormented by inner demons. A self-diagnosed autistic, he lived his adult life primarily in Memphis, Tennessee where he played viola and apparently worked through the challenges in his life by composing music. After his untimely death in a car accident, his friends discovered manuscripts of more than one hundred twenty compositions, including four full-length symphonies, an hour-long Requiem for massed forces, a ballet, and various opera scenes.
