Fantasia for Flute program notes: "As the title suggests, I composed this flute solo with the idea of creating a dreamlike mood and atmosphere of fantasy. It is a character piece, one that evokes a dreamland where free flights of fanciful whims predominate, both in the fast and slow sections of the composition."
