This Fantasy for violin and piano was written for the final scene of Ladies in Lavender, transforming the romantic main theme into an extended, bravura minor variation full of dramatic intensity and longing. It has become a popular piece in its own right, establishing itself as an audience favorite in the concert repertoire.
