The history of fantasy as a form of composition spans centuries and the term was already used in the Renaissance. Many great composers tried their hand at this genre, each giving it a personal touch. With romantic fantasies by Frédéric Chopin, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Robert Schumann, Amit Yahav presents a number of highlights of this musical form on his new GENUIN recording. The Israeli pianist completed his doctorate on Chopin in London and for his album recording chose, among other works, the composer's posthumous Fantaisie Impromptu, op. 66, which was taken from a manuscript. A wonderful discovery!
