Fantasy for a symphonic orchestra Pohádka (Fairy-tale) by Václav Trojan (1907 - 1983) is quiet brief, approximately seven-and-half minutes long piece for the philharmonic orchestra with a piano, a celesta, a harp and a relatively large percussion group. This, by itself, suggests an important role of the colour of sound, variability of the rich timber shades. From a thematic and expressive perspective it is a temperamental orchestral fantasy with rather quick changes in contrasts.

Trojan created Pohádka probably in 1946 or at the beginning of the following year. It was to be heard for the first time in the broadcast of the Czechoslovak Radio on the 7th of December 1947 performed by the Symphonic orchestra FOK, directed by Zbyněk Vostřák. In the same year Fairy-tale received the Award of the Czechoslovak Radio. Nevertheless the score remained in the manuscript and now it is published for the first time.
