Violin and Guitar
Suite breve (1974) 10′
Violin (viola, flute, oboe)/Git further version for guitar duo
Premiere 1976 Cologne, Musikhochschule Anette Read, Wulfin Lieske
The original 1975 title was qualified by ‘op 1’ in reference to what was to come. In terms of gesture the five-movement suite pays tribute to Ravel and Prokofiev. An early enthusiasm for Arabic-oriental rhythms and an expressive melodic sensitivity is echoed in all phases of my composing.
In 2016 I reworked this piece for a guitar duo.
