Anniversary Celebration for Guitar and String Orchestra
Anniversary Celebration for Guitar and String Orchestra (1991) was commissioned for the Tenth Anniversary season of the Louisiana Sinfonietta. It uses quotations from various Baroque composers throughout the work. There are four solo guitar interludes interposed between the orchestral movements.
This piece was later reworked into three different works: Baroque Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra, Gathering of Friends for string orchestra, and Four Interludes for Solo Guitar/Violin/Viola/Cello.
