To some, Frank Zappa is a civil bugbear, to others he is a master at the rock guitar, and to even others he is a composer with a virtually unceasing amount of energy and ingenuity. In short: an American icon.
ascolta performs a broad selection of Zappa's works from the late 60s to the early 90s. Personal connections that various performers had to Zappa are important, with regard to the arrangement, as both ascolta percussionists were part of a recording of works by Varèse under the artistic direction of Zappa. All programme pieces were transcribed and arranged by Andrew Digby and Hubert Steiner.

Produced by HCMF

    Great concert. Wonderful to hear some of Zappa's work played so well.
