Work Overview

Lyric Fantasy is a work consisting of two contrasting, yet unified, movements linked by the intertwining of thematic material. The composer's aim in writing Lyric Fantasy was to write a contemporary yet easily accessible piece. Margaret Brandman believes there is too much tension in the world today, and therefore, music which makes the listener feel relaxed and happy is a good counter-balance to everyday stress. The two movements are in contrasting keys and moods, at times lyrical and flowing and at other moments more vigorous and dynamic.
