Six personalities : guitar solo

by Marián Budoš (1998)

Work Overview

This collection of pieces was requested by my Moravian friend Olga for her guitar students back in 1998. Each piece is inspired by a different personality:

¨ Elza - to Olga and Jan Labant's beloved 'sausage dog'

¨ Olga - for whom I wrote this collection

¨ Vince - my former guitar student who really wanted a piece with 'cool fingerpicking'

¨ Darina - my old university friend - a poet living in Venice

¨ Ivana - inspired by the many creative talents of my wife

¨ Coco - my faithful Norwegian Elkhound, long gone, who would often listen to me write music very intensely, especially in anticipation of food.
