About

Douglas Lilburn wrote a number of works for the guitar from the late 1960s onwards at a time when his creative energies were concerntrated on writing electro-acoustic music, but Ronald Burt persuaded him to contribute to the guitar repertoire and over several months throughout 1969 and 1970 he presented Burt with the collection which would be published in 1975 as Seventeen Pieces for guitar.

Seventeen Pieces represents a comprehensive exploration of guitaristic possibilities in a contemporary setting.
