‘Two Minimalist Etudes’
(2000/2011) – 8

Solo Guitar

I – The Glass Harp
II – The Glass Abacus

Programme Notes

These two pieces lay forgotten in my music archive for 10 years until I rediscovered them whilst going through a box in 2011.
For reasons I don’t know, I never got around to transferring them from the written page into the Sibelius notation system that I now use.
I did that in 2010 as I quite liked the pieces when I found them.

They are strongly influenced by Philip Glass and perhaps fill a gap left by the fact that Glass has not written any solo guitar works.
