Solo flute, c.4'00.  Grade 6

The melody for Fantasie was inspired by harpist friends of mine with whom I often play flute. In it I attempted to capture the free and languid essence of that instrument by using flexible rhythmic motives, long phrases and glissandos. The use of the breath and pause is important in the piece with the idea of allowing significant phrases to hang momentarily in the air. The opening motive recurs in different disguises and moods throughout the piece and then again in its original form at the end of the work to close the circle.
