Poor Heinrich
for solo guitar


This is a suite of simple guitar solos that were commissioned by a friend who not only plays guitar, but is also a professor of Medeival German. They are designed to be used as incidental music for an audio book, a dramatic reading of a Medieval story read in Medieval German. As some of the movement titles suggest, the music's character is inspired by characters or situations in the story. Similarly, although no attempt was made to actually compose stylistically appropriate Medieval music, the modal flavors used in these pieces help give them a somewhat ancient-feeling ambiance. The movement titles are:

The Girl's Music
Road Music

Duration Ca. 6 minutes.
