Fjärran - "something far away, elusive, fragmentary". The opening bar (which returns varied later the work) refers to one particular bar in the Brahm's Clarinet Quintet. The work is almost entirely slow and quiet.

Commissioned note

Fjärran was commissioned by Anna McGregor in 2012 with funding from Creative New Zealand.
