Toychestra and Fred Frith: What leave Behind
Small edition 'Concert for Electric Guitar and Toy Orchestra, written by Dan Plonsey. Toychestra is a 6 piece goup (all women) who play.... toy instruments. A charming and curious meeting and an opportunity for Fred to play a lot of great, (mostly) tuneful guitar. The problem is that, for their part, the Toychestra's means are very restricted and the use made of them rather predictable and based on repetition. Nice idea with a lot of nice stretches, but a bit plodding and static overall.
