(pothos tès melous psychès)

for solo guitar


Three movements:
  • Adagio molto liberamente
  • Allegro quasi scherzando
  • Largo liberamente
duration: ca. 7 minutes
The title means: searching / longing for the spirit/soul of the melos - and melos in old greek can also refer to melody or song.

The guitar has to be tuned differently for this piece: the highest two strings are tuned a semitone higher, so: e-strong becomes f, b-string becomes c. The notation of the score is non-transposing.
