With this Suite for guitar – whose main reference point is the baroque instrumental suite and its traditional dances – the interpreter takes a journey through various compositional styles (e.g. the use of microstructures, modality, atonality, harmony in fourths, whole-tone scales), in the form of a dance. Within the scope of this metacultural project, both performer and listener are presented with a musical juxtaposition where the baroque suite is always present as a historic reference. This project is aimed at an average level of guitar students where instrumental technique is equally as important as composition. In this respect, the Suite is useful in the areas of concert performance, in the teaching of instrumental technique and in compositional analysis.
