Program Note:

I called this single-movement piano quintet Fantasia because it doesn’t follow a strict formal structure and contains little structural repetition or recapitulation. The central section is generally slower than the rest and is followed by a presto finale, but otherwise related motifs tend to flow one from the other organically through the course of the work. It is ‘pure’ music that uses no external imagery, allusion, narrative or poetry.

Carl Vine, January 2013


Fantasia was commissioned by the Arizona Friends of Chamber Music, sponsored by Wesley C. Green in memory of his wife, Pearl Green. It was first performed by Bernadette Harvey and the Shanghai Quartet at the Tucson Winter Chamber Music Festival on March 24th 2013.
