Michael Patilla , Solo Guitar
Nine Honduran Pieces for Solo Guitar

About the Collection:
My friendship with the country of Honduras goes back several years, beginning with an opportunity I had to meet and work with a handful of young guitarists from that country. I have since traveled there a few times to give concerts and teach masterclasses, but my most meaningful experience in Honduras was as a Fulbright Scholar for the 2007-2008 academic year. During that time, I began to work on a project to compile guitar music by Honduran composers, particularly works that would represent the rich cultural heritage of the country. This book is the result of that project and it includes nine previously unknown and unpublished works.

In this collection, one will find works that require varying skill levels, from early-intermediate student-level pieces to more advanced works, all suitable for the concert stage. One will also encounter a variety of musical styles, including folksong arrangements, Spanish, Caribbean, jazz, and a Brazilian Bossa Nova. It is my hope that these fresh new works will become a standard part of the repertoire and will be enjoyed by students and professionals alike.
