Fantasque was commissioned by French cornet player Alexis Demailly for a CD project full of music for cornet with string accompaniment. 

Fantasque is a work in four movements that was inspired by the unpredictability of the sea. Each movement symbolizes one of the different moods the sea can have. The first and fourth movement are rough and raw. The second movement symbolizes a softly windy shore. The third movement is the calm phase before the storm, the sky is cloudy and dark but the storm has not arrived yet.
