Robert Helps, Esoterica tour

Piano Music by Robert Helps

Robert Helps circa 1952

Fantasy (1952) [piano solo]

Helps’ official opus one. A ravishingly lyrical, sad work in the vein of Alban Berg without all the masochistic self-pity. Well, maybe a little of it…

Duration: 10 minutes

The work is dedicated to Jacqueline Michael
