for three guitars
(Zimmermann-Verlag ZM 24880)

Preludio y Fuga antiguo was written 1978 during my studies at the Hamburger Musikhochschule (Conservatory for Music) in Hamburg. It was the assignment of the composition class to write music in the style of the old masters. Stylistical similarities to well-known baroque masters are, therefore, not accidental. For this reason, "Preludio y Fuga antiguo" is not authentic music of the baroque, but original music for three guitars.

This publication is intended for players who are mainly concerned with having fun while making music. The composition is meant als material in the style of a period which offers hardly any original literature for several guitars. I avoided giving dynamic indications, leaving them to the creativity of the individual player.
