Winner of 2013 ‘Homage to Bach’ Composition Competition.
A prize offered jointly by Classical Society of Victoria and the Australian Bach Society, the 2013 competition was judged by Richard Charlton and the winning entry was The Guitarist’s Bach by Michelle Nelson. This work is modelled on the so-called ‘Lute Suites’ by JS Bach and uses two short phrases from those famous works, as the starting point for a new five-movement suite that honours the traditional Bach structure, whilst also incorporating some subtle elements of modern harmony.
