for solo cello
10 May 2001
Fantasy for solo cello consists of two main movements. The first is free, meditative and somewhat ancient in its modal fragments. A short transition connects to the second movement, which is fast and virtuoso. In spite of the character and tempo difference, the two movements look at the cello as a small orchestra, with many colors, roles and textures. Thus the in Fantasy, the cello is both the soloist and the accompanist.
