Programme Note:

Stephen Chatman

Black and White Fantasy, 1981

Commissioned by: CBC for Jane Coop

Premiered by:

Black and White Fantasy is in the form of a continuous single movement with constantly fluctuating moods and tempi. Many sections are virtuosic, comprising fast moving dense clusters and a combination of free and exact rhythms. Other sections are very lyrical and ‘impressionistic’; tonality and bi-tonality are present but tentative. The total effect is that of a restless mood building toward an inevitable final climax.”
