Fantasy composed by Samuel Adler. For piano solo. Contemporary. Score and Part. Standard Notation. 8 pages. Duration 6 minutes. Published by Theodore Presser Company (PR.110418040).
Adlerâ€™s Fantasy was composed for his former student Michael Brown, who premiered the work at Juilliard at an all-Adler concert to honor the composerâ€™s 85th birthday. The one movement work begins with a majestic introduction twice interrupted by short spurts of agitated music. This leads to a fast virtuosic main section written to show off the dexterity of any soloist. Adler has written about the work, â€œI have always felt that we are living in a most exciting time and the agitation and exuberance of this main section is to demonstrate my very optimistic outlook.â€ For advanced pianists.
