Air (Study for Guitar Quartet) is a simple yet deceptively effective piece for four guitars. Perfect for a beginning-to-intermediate level group, the piece is a chorale-like setting of a sweet and lyrical tune, somewhat similar in tone to the American folk-tune Shenandoah. The parts are largely distributed hierarchically, which allows for players of different skill levels to participate. While it is carefully designed to be easy to play, with clear fingerings and articulation marks, it is not without its challenges for the ensemble. Issues of balance, synchronization and phrasing are raised in making a sensitive reading of this audience-friendly piece.
