Ctibor Susser No. 6 Fantasy from the world of minerals



Vol. 6 is written for mature, experienced and technically well-accomplished players. On the other hand, the melodies are composed in such a way as to make their technique accessible and uncomplicated. The Volume opens with an eight-piece renaissance-like Suite for one or two guitars. Further pieces are mostly romantic in character. There is also, however, music influenced by clacissism, blues and the Spanish style. The Volume contains 36 solo pieces, of which 19 have a second part added.

The pieces in this textbook bear names of stones that I have collected in the Slavkov Forest region of Western Bohemia. A number of stones on show in museums all round the world hail from this region. I am enchanted by stones, and several times a week make visits to places which once saw the beginnings of mining in the Middle Ages.
