Description

'Opening with an impatient gesture in the piano immediately answered by an energetic viola line, the piano then joins and interrupts'. This sets the scene for Watkins' 'Fantasy', a contemporary work written in the Baroque tradition, full of highly contrasting sections. Expansive sections exploiting the viola's lyrical qualities are skilfully juxtaposed, often abruptly, with new but related ideas. The work was written for, and inspired by, the internationally acclaimed viola-player, Lawrence Power.
