Fantasia Luminosite for Violin solo and orchestra stands for two meanings: “Fantasia” for orchestra part with epic expressions for lyrical and powerful energy, and “Luminosite” for the image of a violin solo player playing advanced techniques in splendidly.
The violin solo part requires highly technical styles worthy of the name of concerto carried by exhaustively fundamental string technique rather than contemporary techniques. The orchestra not only assists violin solo but also create overall unity of the musical work by means of sonority with various colors and characteristic themes of orchestra itself.
