Instruments

Composed in 2009 at the request of duo parnas, sisters Madalyn (violin) and Cicely (cello). It consists of a series of contiguous elaborated variations on a theme stated at the beginning, which is material also used in several works by the composer, including his Sigol Musings for solo violin, String Quartet No. 3, and 'Sigol' for Two, a fantasy written for duo parnas in 2008 and recorded on their CD Gare du Nord.  The theme starts rhapsodically  and ends with a little dance. The sequence of seven parts is identical in form to 'Sigol' for Two, and consists of the theme, a scherzando, a nervous fantasy, an aria which paraphrases the theme, a quixotic drama, a lullaby, and a varied reprise of the scherzando.  The relationship of the solo duo to the orchestra is more in the nature of collaboration than confrontation; the orchestra provides congenial settings for the solo parts while maintaining its own character. Fantasia concertante was awarded First Prize in the 2009 Fauxharmonic competition in Boston and was premiered at Indiana University in February 2011 by duo parnas with the Indiana New Musuic Ensemble conducted by David Dzubay.

Composer's note, January 2011:  

As I set about to compose this salute to the New England Music Camp in celebration of its seventy-fifth anniversary, I couldn’t help thinking of America’s first truly modern composer, Connecticut’s son, Charles Ives. 

Ives gave birth in his iconoclastic music to musical concepts that were completely original - sometimes outrageously daring and complex. Though I avoided the temptation to tip my hat in some musical way to Ives, he was often in my thoughts as I composed. Perhaps because Ives makes strong references to the New England transcendentalists - Emerson, Whitman, Thoreau

- in his Essay Before a Sonata, the specters of those philosophers were also running through my head.

My tone poem opens with a quiet starlit night. Several moods follow, each more energetic than the one before. Ultimately, the climax is reached in an energetic fugato section. Suddenly, all motion is suspended for several seconds, and gradually the opening scenes return, only in reverse order.
