Originally composed for viola and piano.
Responding to the theme of War and Peace, An Anzac Reflection references The Last Post on violin at the start and end of the work, framed within a hypnotic broken chord piano accompaniment. This opening leads into a more indulgent section, exploiting double stopping in violin and wide-spread accompanying chords exploring the extremities of the piano. A lilting melody filled with lush sounding double-stopping ensues, before the music heads towards a jazzy swing ballad feel, with piano and violin alternating melodic phrases. After a return of the earlier lilting melody on violin, the piece comes to a close, with another brief reference to The Last Post. Originally written for viola and piano, this piece also works well on violin and piano.
Commissioned by Milan Milisavjevic and Sherry Grant for their NZ War and Peace recitals in May 2019
