Commissioned by Carl Gutowski.
Premiered at Saint Andrews Church, Beacon, NY, September 2017
Fantasy was commissioned as a wedding gift by flutist Carl Gutowski for his niece. As with the individuals whose marriage inspired this piece, flute and piano are equal partners. Their relationship flows between discussion, duet, argument and canonic imitation, each voice having the chance to be leader and follower. They fall in and out of synch with each other, but are always linked in harmonious partnership. The work is in loose rondo form to convey the enduring nature of their relationship thru the ever returning theme of love.
