Viola and piano, c.5'30
Stephen Lebsanft is an emerging composer, arranger and performer from Toowoomba, Queensland. He holds a Bachelor of Music majoring in classical trombone from the Queensland Conservatorium. During his time in Brisbane studying this degree, Stephen wrote and arranged many works for various brass ensembles. The most notable of which was "Three Encounters", a work depicting three artist’s representations of a colonial encounter with a native tribe and was awarded full marks after submitting it for elective assessment.
Stephen has enjoyed a long involvement with the Queensland Youth Orchestras from a young age and has played with the preeminent Queensland Youth Symphony for three years. This organisation also gave him the opportunity to premiere some of his own works at their chamber music concerts. Recently, he was awarded first prize in the open senior section of the Music Teacher’s Association of Queensland and Gold Coast Teacher’s Group composer’s competition.
His interest in composition stems from a deep passion for score analysis and the relation of the work to the context surrounding its creation. To this end, Stephen enjoys writing instrumental music predominantly for symphony orchestra and chamber ensembles.
Stephen is a composer of 'Wirripang New Composition' (2015).
