Nistar: ‘Fantasie Elegiaque’, 1979

Commissioned by:

Premiered by:

Nistar, or ‘Secret’ is subtitled ‘Fantasie Elegiaque’. A work for solo piano, Nistar was composed for his wife Dorothy, for performance on an upcoming concert tour in Europe. It is in one movement and develops into variation form from the melody and darkly expressive harmonies of the opening. Referring to its subtitle as an ‘elegiac fantasy’, Nistar expresses in music some of the composer’s reminiscences of the horrors of the Holocaust.”
