Description Inspired by the ancient greek statue - "Aphrodite Knidos" by Praxiteles (4th Century BC)
- the most beautiful and well-known image from the classical Mediterranean world .
This suite for solo guitar combines ancient and modern elements conjuring a
mystical and ethereal sound-scape. One significant structural feature is the use of
the 'Olympos Pentatonic Scale' (7th Century BC.) in the 1st, 2nd and 4th movements,
though with modern tuning.
