Dances to the night sky : three guitar trios / Amanda Handel.

Library shelf no. Q 785.78713/HAN 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This set of three pieces calls for a strong rhythmic and percussive approach (particularly the first and third). Vital tight ensemble work is imperative to realise the dance nature & character. The second piece is more reflective and hypnotic. All three movements draw on the use of standard extended techniques and include asymmetric meters.
