In The Final Frontier , the composer explores various associations with the universe. Inspired by Stephen Hawking's book Brief Answers to the Big Questions, the work describes the wonders and dangers of the universe, the big questions about the smallest elements and the possibility of space travel.

The work consists of four parts. In the first part, 'Energy and Space', the musical material is exhibited. A universe can arise from energy and space. The second part, 'The Great Unknown', is a fast part where the materials are further elaborated, it outlines the dangers of the universe, such as supernovae and black holes. The third part, 'The Big Questions', is a reflective part with various soloists. Consider, for example, how whole dimensions can be rolled up in the smallest elements. Also, a Dutch pioneer in cosmology is hidden in the notes. The fourth part, 'The Final Frontier', is a big build up to a majestic finale, capturing the excitement of space travel.

The Final Frontier is the compulsory work for the 3rd division of the Dutch Brass Band Championships 2021.
