The Fantasy was included in New Music Shelf's Anthology of New Music: Viola, Vol. 1
The Fantasy’s name adequately expresses its formal freedom: a harmonically lush exploration of different moods, colors, meters, and tempi. New material follows new material as if in a dream, though continuity is maintained through an arcing melodic gesture that builds itself into the fabric of the Fantasy. At the end, the Fantasy slowly recedes from the audience, fading away as if we are waking unwillingly from it.
The Fantasy is featured on the Milestones: New Music for Viola from the Third Millennium, released by Centaur Records, performed by Christopher Lowry and Daniel Liebeskind.
