Commissioned by the Austin Classical Guitar Board of Directors
The Hinsleyian Overture is dedicated to Dr. Matthew Hinsley in celebration of a decade of service through Austin Classical Guitar. These years have immeasurably enriched the Austin community through Matt’s big ideas, adventurous collaborations and elegant execution.
The Overture is a tribute to Matt’s uncanny prowess as a catalyst of change and the powerful will and determination required to create. It charts the journey of an idea from the initial joyous spark through its evolution – through work and play, through refinement and uncertainty, through risk and, ultimately, an unfettered return of the opening joyous spark.
