"Fantasy of the Desert", is a full orchestral piece inspired by travelling in the desert near my hometown. Generally speaking, I intend to depict the different scenes when it is sunny, windy, and stormy. For this goal, I utilized the different timbre of each instruments to produce unique sound effects. For better describing the appearance of the desert under different conditions, I designed three main themes for this piece, which can be regarded as a quasi-ternary form. In this paper, I will analyze the "Fantasy of the Desert" from the aspects of inspiration, formal structure, motivic material, orchestration, and the contrasts of dynamics and temples.
