(c) suggests that Little Fantasia
is the only complete piece existing until now, from a quantity of music in fragments of varying length belonging to the ballet The Talisman of the Gods
: a work perhaps never completed, which appears to have been an ambitious compositional project undergoing modifications over the years. It seems to have occupied the composer from 1925, in Paris, until perhaps the middle 1940s.
The detailed work
list (b), by no means a definitive one, since so many of Lèvidis’
works have been lost, is the fruit of research made by the author in
1971-1973 (Athens), in May 1976 and November 1977 (Paris), and in 1981-1982 at the National Library of Greece, in Athens. Its inclusion in the foreword to the published score was made necessary partly by the very scope and length of the
(c), in its effort to answer so many questions about the ballet.
