Work Overview

Each movement is named after a remote location on the east coast of Australia, places that hold a special meaning for me and that were visited during a huge time of upheaval in my life. They are locations of repose and meditation, and upon each site stands a shrine to the memory of my son Eli.

Analysis

Program note: Nigel Westlake - Mosstrooper Peak for 2 Guitars
Nigel Westlake
Mosstrooper Peak (Sonata for 2 Guitars) is a development of the “Sonata For Solo Guitar” (2010) commissioned by Timothy Kain. Based on an identical form as the original solo, the second guitar part has been added in order to amplify the resonances, augment the harmonic structure and share and ornament the melodies and textures, resulting in a tightly knit, intimate dialogue between the 2 instruments.
