Summer Suite, a composition by Romana Hartmetz, is about regaining a sense of wonder by seeing the world through the eyes of a child. The slides (glissandi) should be relaxed and reminiscent of the sound of a lap steel guitar. The piece closes with a setting of an Appalachian fiddle tune “The Wind that Shook the Barley” which is a bittersweet melody for the end of summer.
