Work Overview

This work is dedicated to Kambala School Principal, Margaret White, in recognition of, and as a personal offering of thanks for, her unwavering support of the Music Department over 14 years. It was premiered at her Farewell Concert in City Recital Hall, Angel Place, on October 18, 2013.

Janus was the ancient Roman God of beginnings and transitions. Like the two faces of Janus, this work simultaneously looks to the past, with a dual sense of reflection and celebration, and to the future, with all the exciting promise it brings.
