Steve Vai - Fire Strings

Years ago Steve Vai performed an electric guitar concerto called Le corde du feu but never released the recording. If I recall correctly, some Jemsite members attended the performance. The music does not sound like Yngwie Malmsteen playing over an orchestra, its more on the modernist/avant garde side of the musical spectrum which is one reason Vai did not release it, I suspect. I understand his mentality at the time but I wonder if audiences might be more receptive now. There are probably legal reasons involved; it may not be his to release. The score is available but not the easiest thing get and it would be a shame not to hear a great electric guitarist play a difficult piece of contemporary music accurately with great electric tone. (It is really hard to have good electric guitar tone in a classical music setting.) This is just my opinion though....
