The history of fantasy stretches back over centuries and dates back to the Renaissance. Almost all great composers tried their hand at this genre, each giving it a personal touch. With fantasies by Frédéric Chopin, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, and Robert Schumann, Amit Yahav presents several highlights of this musical form on his new CD. The Israeli pianist completed his doctorate in London on the subject of Chopin and chose for his CD recording, among others, the composer’s posthumously published Fantaisie Impromptu Op. 66 from a manuscript with Chopin’s handwriting—a worthwhile discovery!
