Details

The Fantasia was commissioned by the Terezin Music Foundation in 2003.  The term "virtual", borrowed from contemporary cyberspace usage, refers to the fact that the choral is not really there — that is, until the end of the piece.

It's "essence", in the form of thematic and harmonic fragments swirl around until they finally emerge into the choral itself.  It makes a brief appearance, but then begins to disintegrate, vanishing into silence.

The Hawthorne String Quartet recorded the Fantasia on Naxos 8.559661.
