Red and White Suite (16’00)
Red and White Suite (2011), Guitar Duo, Full Score
About this Work
The Red and White Suite was written for Maja Radovanlija and Guido Sanchez. This suite is modeled after Bach’s keyboard partitas, especially the 4th in D major. Each of the five movements follows the traditional dance forms of the Baroque suite, but only just. Though they retain the binary form, I took a great deal of license in terms of what I could do within that form. The Ouverture, for example, begins with the traditional dotted rhythms of the French overture, but is followed by a jagged, decidedly non-fugal fast section that owes more to Berio than to Bach.
