Passacaglia (2000)

for solo guitar.

Duration: 5 mins.

Premiered by Dave Flynn in Rathmines Library, Dublin, Ireland. Circa 2000/2001.

The soundcloud recording is from the live world premiere, the venue is on a main street so there’s a bit of traffic noise and church bells audible in the recording!

Programme Note

This piece is faithful to the Baroque Passacaglia form featuring variations over a constant repeated bass-line ostinato, which occasionally moves to higher registers. This is probably the darkest piece in my solo guitar collection.
