Fantasma Lunare was commissioned by the Kanazawa Municipal Technical High School Symphonic Band for performance at La Folle Journ?e de Kanazawa in May of 2008. As the festival featured music of, or related to Beethoven, this piece was derived from his famous Moonlight Sonata. It differs from the original
as its various motives have been modified and reconstructed, though the audience might still recognize
some original fragments.
The composer feels that moonlight obscures one's view, in an even fearful way. It is his intention to guide the audience towards that world of uncertainty.
