Koyunbaba - IV. Presto (Domeniconi)

Recorded on

Thatcher performs the fourth, presto movement of Koyunbaba -- Carlo Domeniconi's suite pastorale for solo guitar.

Domeniconi -- an Italian guitarist and composer -- named his four-movement suite after Koyunbaba, a 15th century Turkish saint.

The name Koyunbaba means sheep father, or shepherd, and the suite, according to Domeniconi, captures "the natural beauty of a little bay" where Saint Koyunbaba was said to have lived so long ago.
