Programme Note:
The Fantasy is a musical discourse and synthesis of contrasting elements. Contrasts include those of mode (major/minor), affect (mood), style (tonal/a-tonal, conventional/20th century), structure (sonata form/free style fantasia, counterpoint/monodic recitative), timbre (consonance/dissonance, contrast in registration/colour) and dynamics. The main theme is 12-tone (basic row followed by its inverted retrograde in transposition) but treated tonally within a chromatic framework. The main theme draws its inspiration from the Lutheran Chorale "Aus tiefer Not"; the second, from the German Vesper Chorale "Mit meinem Gott geh ich zu Ruh".
