An arrangement of the composition for solo cello.
Violet Fantasy is essentially about change. The piece is a series of ever evolving variations of a single theme. As the piece progresses its melody is torn apart and re-contextualized in a number of ways, winding and flowing through a free variation form like a flower laced vine across a branch. The theme never appears exactly the same way twice. It’s often fragmented and disjointed, yet manages to find itself in the end. If anything, Violet Fantasy represents an idea of what pertains through change, and what susceptible to the moment.
