Suite for Guitar



As far as I know, this is the only classical guitar work featuring Keef tuning (named for it's most famous practitioner, Keith Richards). The piece comprises three movements: the opening Prelude, which establishes a happy mood, the Andante espressivo middle movement, which features non-stop tremolo technichque, and Hard-Rock Finish, combining elements of Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" and a Bartokian musical language.


Michael Patilla has featured this piece in his recital repertoire, and, in his hands, it sounds fantastic! Check out his performance in the sound links below.
