Here’s another Sharman work actually written for three guitars, September (1989) (for Morton Feldman). Fiendishly difficult but beautiful. It’s dedicated to Morton Feldman who Rodney studied with early in his composition days. We are at the Canadian Music Centre downtown Vancouver in this one (you can hear the street noise). Rodney talked about the piece first which was a nice touch.
