|Title:||Guitar Pastime Suite in four movements
(No listening currently available)
Buy all the four movements of Guitar Pastime Suite as a bundle, and get them all for the price of three.
This suite features two guitarists in two slightly differently voiced roles, where Guitar 1 is playing a more “major tonality” role, whereas Guitar 2 plays more in a “minor tonality”. The guitar parts offer note reading, rhythm playing and a lot of space for solos and cadenzas.
In the first movement, Pick Your Point, both guitars share the presentation of the theme, and take turns for solistic apperances. Part two, Tic Tac Toe, features the “major guitar”, and part three, Past Masters, is featuring the “minor guitar”. The two guitarists unite in presenting the theme and taking turns soloing again in the fourth part, Juggling.
