Lachlan Moods – Three Pieces for Guitar (2007/09) emphasises the interplay of melodic lines based on an interweaving of major and minor harmonies. The first piece of the set features a cyclically repeated melody coloured by different harmonies. The second is darker in tone, while the third is a virtuosic study, a brief respite for the guitarist being a quotation from Debussy’s piano piece ‘Jimbo’s Lullaby’ from Children’s Corner, which like my theme is also built around the interval of a Major 2nd.
The first of the set was composed in the town of Forbes in Central New South Wales in 2007, and was originally grouped with three other pieces written at the same time. In a subsequent revision in Melbourne in 2009, I retained only this piece, adding two newly composed ones. The title refers to the Lachlan River, which flows through the town of Forbes.
