The Autumnal Fantasy was comissioned by the Finnish Broadcasting Company for a cello composers´ workshop in 1981. Is this music neoromantic? The composer recommends skipping the prefix “neo-”, even though the music is not tonal and the harmonies belong to a more trenchant world. In this composition autumn appears in two forms: first as a melancholic meditation and in later part as a storm of yellow leaves.
