Three mirrors : guitar quartet
by Haydn Reeder (1978)
My intention was to compose a major work for this instrumentation. It was to be built on strong foundations and yet exploit the ravishing sounds which it is capable of producing. The title refers to the three twelve-tone rows which are heard mainly successively, but also at times simultaneously.
The influence of electronic music may be discerned: in fact the original conception was of a piece for such sounds plus guitars.
Instrumentation: 4 guitars.
Duration: 10 min.
First performance: by Australian Guitar Ensemble — 21 May 88. Toorak Uniting Church, Melbourne
