    Exciting music. Challenging, but will definitely use it for my piano quartet to perform in a concert.

    I agree with former customer about the difficulty of the piece. My students enjoy it very much but are working hard on it. Does'it exist a recording of the Fantasy?

    This is definitely a 'fantasy' on themes from Carmen - opening with fiery piano pyrotechnics that leave you almost breathless- and then moving to a very quiet contrast section and then on to other themes and ending spectacularly. This piece is modern in sound in feel - with some almost atonal harmonies...

    - when you are practicing your part alone you'll wonder how it is going to work, but when you get all 4 parts together it sounds amazing. This piece is difficult - I would not agree with the intermediate level given by the publisher - definitely advanced.
