The Sparrow & the Lark

The Sparrow & the Lark

The Sparrow and the Lark

The Sparrow & the Lark was inspired when I was sitting on the porch in my backyard and watching the birds around the birdbath and how they interacted with elements around them. After I wrote this piece I expanded it into an orchestral piece that I named Birds at the Bath.

Old & New

Old & New

Landis Maitland-Whitelaw - Old and New

Old & New was originally composed for two guitars one electric and the other classical to play with a friend of mine. I transformed it into a solo classical guitar solo so that I was able to play it by myself. You will find questions and answers being presented and this is due to the original duality of the piece.
