Waltz-Fantasia is scored for symphony orchestra. The work is contained within a ternary structure, the central section being a waltz flanked by the two outer 'fantasia' sections. The initial 'fantasia' section introduces two themes plus other important motives, all of which undergo continual development throughout the composition. The composition contains influences from both Eastern monody and the European 'waltz', and explores the permutations of triple time and counterpoint. Waltz-Fantasia is one of several works written for the degree of PhD Composition, Melbourne University.
The work was specifically written for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra 2010 Composers' Workshop and recorded by ABC Radio for personal use and submission as part of the PhD Composition portfolio.
