Work Overview

Piano Fantasia No. 1 takes its inspiration from jazz composer and pianist Andrew Hill, who has been a strong influence. The work employs syncopation and rhythm as a driving force, reflecting and reinterpreting Hill's percussive and polyrhythmic approach to the piano. As the piece unfolds, moments of lyricism and beauty emerge out of the rhythmic intensity, often in abstracted gestures looking to escape the dominant rhythmic landscape.

The piece is in three movements; the first and third movements are fully notated, the second movement is a structured improvisation. The performance notes include a detailed description of the requirements for executing the second movement.
