Chamber Music by Robert Helps

Fantasy (1963) [Violin & piano]

 — A complex and rhapsodic piece which forms part of the chamber music "happening" Serenade (along with Nocturne for string quartet and Postlude for violin, horn, & piano).
The work was written for the expressive virtuosity of violinist Isidore Cohen, a frequent chamber music partner of Helps.
