In stock (1000 items available)
The first book devoted to the Portsmouth Sinfonia, The World’s Worst: A Guide to the Portsmouth Sinfonia examines the founding tenets, organising principles and collective memories of the Sinfonia, whose historical position as “the world’s worst orchestra” underplays its unique accomplishment as a populist avant-garde project in which music, collectivity and humour all flourished. The unorthodox journey of the Sinfonia unfolds here through interviews with the orchestra’s original members and publicist/manager, magazine publications, photographs and unseen archival material, alongside an essay by Christopher M. Reeves.
