Abandoned Toy Shop 

Timothy Loest
Grade 1

Orphaned toys come to life in this eerie tour of an abandoned toy store. The work opens and closes with Victor Herbert’s dreamlike Toyland as a Jack-in-the-box plays Pop Goes the Weasel. A wealth of toy sounds make their appearance among diminished chords, tri-tones, and the Dies Irae, which surrounds an aleatoric section featuring a whole host of noisy toys. Highly accessible, extremely creative, and definitely memorable!
