“Four miniatures” for solo guitar

This is a set of short pieces in different styles (minimalistic meditative “Prelude”, bright Spanish-like “Impromptu”, dissonant “Chimes”, and Irish-like “Dance”), which explore a non-standard scordatura (the 2nd string b and the 4th string eb) and Eb key of the guitar.
