|composer's note:||Maintaining a persistent beat throughout, "Fantasy for Orchestra" begins with a dramatic and highly energetic theme stated immediately in the violins. The range of expression is wide, moving from dance-like rhythms—making use of irregular meters—to rather dreamy textures. Throughout much of the work, even in the softer, more fantasy-like middle section, the use of percussion—gongs, cowbells, and various drums—is prevalent.
