Description:
Fnn's Fantasy is composed for my friend and colleague Andrew Simpson (Principal Violist of the Aachen Symphony Orchestra). Originally it was composed for solo viola and ensemble. This version was premièred during one of the Chamber Music Concerts at the Aachen Theatre with Andrew Simpson as soloist and members of the Aachen Symphony Orchestra conducted by the composer. To make future performances of this piece more practical I asked composer Adrian Williams to make a version for viola and piano. This version was premièred at the ZARVA Festival in Vaals (The Netherlands) by Andrew Simpson and Karina Şabac.

Fnn's Fantasy is a real fantasy piece (Fantasiestück). It's around 10 minutes long, it has lots of ideas in it and it was composed very impulsively. In the music  I tried to keep a sketch-like character, which I think strongly belongs to a fantasy piece. - Marijn Simons
