Fantasy-Sonata and Dream Music No. 1 for piano by William Bolcom
Fantasy-Sonata and Dream Music No. 1
for Solo Piano
Publisher: Edward B. Marks Music Company
Composer: William Bolcom
Two of William Bolcom's earliest and most complex piano solos are now available in this excellent volume featuring new engravings and explanatory and programmatic notes by the composer. Fantasy-Sonata (1961) exhibits a youthful enthusiasm for the European triumvirate of Boulez-Berio-Stockhausen dating from his period of study in Paris, as well as an abiding fondness for Charles Ives. Dream Music No. 1 (1965) expands on this influence from a time when Bolcom was a pianist at Pierre Boulez's Domaine Musical in Paris.
