The End

“The End” 2017 for viola and piano, written for and performed by Steffanie Farrands (principle viola TSO), commissioned by the National Women in Composition Development Program



Program Note

This piece was inspired by the poignant, nostalgic ache I feel upon the realisation of reaching the end of a life-changing journey that is the National Women Composer’s Development Program with 3 incredibly talented, kind, vivacious and fierce women that I am only so lucky to know. To Ella Macens, Elizabeth Younan and Clare Johnston— thank you for being my inspirations, a source of drive, my rocks and my therapists for the last 2 years. It feels like a lifetime, may it be a lifetime more of flourishing side by side.

Also to Michael Smetanin, my maestro, for the constant push to be better, the weird & wonderful ways in which you see potential in my art, the wine, the laughs, the tears and the triumphs— how could I ever thank you enough. I will never cease to learn from you.
