Solstice (2013)

for solo guitar

Solstice employs the warm timbres, shimmering textures, and spicy harmonies of the guitar to evoke the warm, dry sunshine of the summer solstice. I wrote the piece for my friend and colleague Laura Husbands in June 2013, inspired by the guitar music of Leo Brouwer, along with the summer weather I was experiencing in Denver.
