About the work:
Extreme Unction was commissioned by Sinfonia Toronto for Jeff Reilly with financial support from the Ontario Arts Council.
The composer writes:
‘Half notated, half improvised, Extreme Unction is a work that is inspired by an imaginary glimpse of our afterlife and our instinctive struggle to cling on to the things we know. It is a meditation on dying and on what may lie beyond, as well as, hopefully, an early attempt to come to terms with this important and inevitable milestone in my own life.’
