Changes for guitar solo, is music of mercurial contrasts of character and mood, unified by its harmonic structure. Various aspects of the basic harmony are brought out in the course of the work, somewhat like the patterns used in ringing changes. The score was written in 1983 and is dedicated to David Starobin who commissioned it, and generously gave me advice about the guitar.
"An excellent modern guitar piece by the American maestro Elliott Carter. Technically and intellectually demanding. A very energetic composition with beautiful slow passages and a wonderful epilogue."
