This epilogue reflects on Marga Richter's music, suggesting that her zest for living, coupled with her dedication to her art, makes her a role model for younger composers and performers. As she takes old age in stride, Richter has not thought of retiring and remains focused on composition. She continues to spend summers in Vermont and enjoys the beauty around her and visiting with professional colleagues, friends, and family. This epilogue describes Richter's musical style, which has remained fairly constant throughout her life, and argues that her works are characterized by dissonance, slowly unfolding free forms, ostinatos and layering, and a loose tonality. It also considers Richter's ties with feminism and her views on gender roles.
