Phantasy for piano solo was commissioned and first performed by Tamara Smolyar in November 2017. A request for the commission was for the work to be linked to Sergei Rachmaninoff's Trio Elegiaque No.1. As such, the Phantasy takes a four-note theme from the Trio's principal theme and utilises this throughout the duration of the work. The work also reimagines the 'phantasy' form which was made popular in England by Walter Cobbett in the late nineteenth-early twentieth century.
