Formatted abstract
This thesis examines the neo-Romantic qualities in the guitar piece Le Decameron Noir. This piece, written in 1981, marked a divergence in Brouwer's style from the use of modernist writing techniques to a simpler style of composition which attempts to reconnect with the musical heritage of past composers. This transformation puts Brouwer into the neo-Romantic school of composition and the following thesis will look at the musical aspects of the piece and relate them to the precepts of that style.
