These are wonderful arrangements, and the music on this CD is quite accessible - even my 5 year old daughter likes it. While you have to be a pretty devoted fan of experimental music to get into many of the tracks on 'The Yellow Shark', this one is a great way to introduce Serious Music People to the Frank Zappa we know and love.
Reccomended for all Zappa fans and chamber music types.

I accidentally learned about this wonderful CD while browsing through Amazon.com.
Le Concert Impromptu & Rossini play Frank Zappa. From a classical perspective, they interpret a wide range of Zappa's work. They include 16 cuts and go back to ABSOLUTELY FREE where they present their interpretation of THE DUKE OF PRUNES. I've heard other classical presentations of THE DUKE OF PRUNES and am fond of their version. This is particularly interesting because Le Concert Impromptu employs NO percussion. They present THE DUKE OF PRUNES with a flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon, which seem contrary to the original message. However, the musicians do an excellent job. I found all the selections quite striking with a fine job of sound engineering.
As a side note, I was playing the CD on my office computer. A colleague entered my office and commented, "Nice elevator music." I had to laugh. As I reflected on my history of listening to Zappa, I could never imagine someone describing his work as elevator music.
I strongly recommend this CD to all Zappa fans.

Stuck in a classical rut? This will get you moving in the right direction. Excellent arrangement and execution.
Old twist to newer sound. I like it, but prefer the original master himself.
