It suddenly struck me this evening, while listening to the
Ensemble Modern's version of
'Music for Guitar and Low Budget Orchestra'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8u4q__wuKyw

that, it is a great cover of the original.

It lead me to think that Frank has most probably left some compositions our future
musicians, along with their new instruments, could re-interpret.

This is one of my favorite compositions...so much going on, so deceptively contagious.

I would think that musicians for years to come would find compositions like this one to be a challenge to their skills. Playing in an orchestra is one thing, but playing THIS...that's talent, baby!

Location: Chicago, sort of.
As someone who loves the FZ orchestral stuff, I'd LOVE to see more. I wonder if there are unfinished pieces from different eras in his career that could be interpreted by well-meaning ensembles. Something on the Synclavier hard drive perhaps, even though many of those pieces have been recorded according to Frank's interpretive ideas. In any case, if such material exists, Gail doesn't much like people using their own interpretations.....
