Monteleone Four SeasonsяAutumn, Winter, Spring, Summer, 2002-2006
"This quartet of season-inspired archtops began in 2002, with Winter. Each guitar is individually voiced, designed with seasonal decorations inside and out, and functions on its own and in the quartet. The massive undertaking was completed in 2006 with Spring. Monteleone has commissioned a work to be composed for the ensemble by composer and guitarist Anthony Wilson. "
