Fantasia : for piano quintet
by Carl Vine (2013)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
I called this single-movement piano quintet Fantasia because it doesn't follow a strict formal structure, and it contains little structural repetition or recapitulation. It isn't based on a central cache of themes to be developed methodically, but rather features a large number of mostly unrelated themes that unfold organically through the work. The central section is generally slower than the rest and is followed by a presto finale, but the structure is otherwise fluid and flexible. It is 'pure' music that uses no external imagery, allusion, narrative or poetry.
