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.
