With a deep love of the intimacy and intricacy that is the essence of chamber music, I strive in this work to integrate the saxophone with the string quartet, while never forgetting its irrepressible uniqueness. “Fantasy” follows the journey of a theme, expressed at the outset by the saxophone, and a rhythmic motive, stated first by the viola, as they transformed and dismantled in various ways along with subsidiary themes, and finally arrive at an exuberant recapitualtion.

Duration: ca. 15 minutes
Instrumentation: alto saxophone and string quartet
