Commissioned by the Minneapolis and North Carolina Guitar Quartets and premiered at the Guitar Foundation of America International Festival, this work is similar in form and expressive quality to In the Dragon’s Garden. The textures achieved in this work are both surprising and satisfying and the expressive and stylistic range is broad. The five movements are played without pause.
