There is no title for this fantasia in the source. The rubric to Fantasia 10 simply says that “these two next fantasias go according to terms of the first and second modes”. It is a Fantasia in consonancias and redobles style, unmistakably Milán. The work contains snippets from several other fantasias in El Maestro. In this work, he introduces some textures not seen in previous fantasias especially in the first section. The form is a little wayward – “picturesque” – deviates from his idea. The following diagram shows the first and last sections as the most substantial. Both employ repetition. Sections II, III, IV are perhaps able to be grouped together as IV represents the working out of the material of II, with sidetracking in between. Theme 2b is first given as the second motive in theme 1.
