Fritzi, From Mundus Canis [electronic resource]

Loading...
This composition in five movements stemmed from a commission from guitarist David Starobin for a small dance piece for solo guitar, one of several such works Starobin was requesting of several composers.

The end result is a five minute guitar piece with percussion, each dedicated to the memory of one of the successive Crumb family dogs, most of which were dachshunds.
