III. There is Dance All Around (Jouni Stenroos)
IV. Still and Rising Still
Written in 2011 for Mark Clifton-Gaultier, five movements, ca. 12 minutes.
I’ve always been interested in vocal music, and “Songbook” is a song cycle where the guitar plays both the vocal and accompaniment parts. This was a very pleasant piece to write, and it felt natural and easy to come up with lyrical, mood-specific music.
