This Fantasia in G was only recently discovered among the last manuscripts to be examined in the Nino Rota archive in Venice. Together with the 15 Preludes (ED 9386), it is one of the few works by this Italian composer for piano solo. It was composed in the oppressive atmosphere of the last years of the war. The first and closing sections conjure up a feeling of late Romanticism from the distant past, while the middle section is characterised by melancholy melodies typical of Rota.
