Fiddler’s Farewell

To listen to and view scores click on the title of the work.


With a nod to the composer’s Irish lineage on her mother’s side, this work encompasses the characteristics of a jig, emphasizing the strong sense of pulse required for this lively dance. The bowing is a mixture of hooked strokes and alternating down and up bows, encouraging sound left and right-hand co-ordination.
This piece is dedicated to the students and teachers of Somerville House, both past and present, as a parting gift after 35 Years as Director of Strings at the South Brisbane school.
