Fantasy-Toccata

for Violin and Piano (2003)

Commissioned by Oleh Krysa

Program Notes:
Fantasy-Toccata for Violin and Piano was composed for Oleh Krysa and Tatiana
Tchekina and receives its world premiere at the present concert. The piece is a vigorous
interplay between two contrasting main themes and two instruments, acting as a couple of
dancers on stage, dancing independently, synchronously, and solo, revealing their
characters. The exchange of short tunes between the instruments was inspired by
traditional Russian hand-made patchwork, where small patches of different fabric create a
larger mosaic-like cloth, enriched by a vast color palette.
