Fantasia in August was composed in the first 2 weeks of August 2011, hence the title. It is part of an ongoing effort to find a viable, non-tonal, post-serial musical language. The piece is composed in shortish sections that run into each other without breaks. There are a few oblique salutes to composers or pieces I admire, the most obvious being to Benjamin Britten's Nocturnal. The piece is also something of a lament for a near and dear relative who passed away when I was beginning to think about it.
