This dissertation investigates the musical and phenomenological aspects of Four Fragments of Time by Marcus Siqueira (b. 1974) and provides a performance guide for this work. Furthermore, this dissertation analyzes previous guitar works by the composer, seeking to understand Siqueira’s compositional idiosyncrasies and to provide context for the interpretation of Four Fragments of Time. This dissertation includes a biography of the composer, an analysis of the compositional process of Four Fragments of Time, an analysis of the recurrent idiomatic procedures in Siqueira’s guitar works, and an overview of the collaborative process between the composer and the author. Additionally, an analysis of the phenomenological events of Four Fragments of Time, an overview of the history of the guitar in Brazil, and a catalog of Siqueira’s works featuring guitar are included to provide further context. The main purpose of this research is to introduce the reader to Marcus Siqueira’s rich guitar opus and to provide a performance guide to facilitate the study of Four Fragments of Time, as well as other works by the same composer.
