Fanatic is a concert piece for violin and piano and was written for violinist Alicia Choi. The outer sections are in the character of scherzo while the central portion of the piece takes the harmonies of the scherzi, slows them down and reinterprets the material as a dark elegy. Other than the fanatical battle that occurs between the violin and piano, the title refers to the type of energy that must be drawn upon to successfully perform the work.
