The Saskatchewan Suite , Landis Maitland-Whitelaw

The Saskatchewan Suite contains 3 short pieces written at different times for solo classical guitar. The pieces were later put together into the Saskatchewan Suite and later made into an orchestral piece (2005) and was subsequently premiered by the Regina Symphony to commemorate Saskatchewans anniversary, after a call for scores from across Canada. 

  1. North Country (1997/2005) was written to depict the northern part of Saskatchewan. It starts with a percussive section to depict the aboriginal north and then into melody to represent the blend of cultures ending in the percussive section.
