Fantasy is…

ehrlich-piece-image2This piece was written in various places around the UK and the USA. The musical inspiration for the piece came mainly from the Charles Elliot Norton Lectures of Italo Calvino, which he never actually gave. The opening section takes the quote “Depth is hidden, where? On the surface” as its launching point, and the piece moves through various vignettes until reaching the final quote “Fantasy is a place where it rains.” I’m personally fascinated by fantasy literature, and anything that’s particularly magical.
