Format: Audio CD
As fans well know, Frank Zappa's music is, more often than not, akin to highly nutritional brain food, as were his ideas and discourse on so many topics- so smart, funny, charismatic and...fun!
His passing in 1993 was a dramatic loss to the world and he is intensely missed by many.
Although the body of recorded works he left behind is not only enormous, profoundly varied, often extraordinarily complex and exquisitely satisfying, it can still be a frustrating exercise to ponder what marvels he could be manifesting in our modern times; his genius applied to current technologies boggles the mind.

So, it is somewhat comforting and fitting that one of Frank's final major projects was to be the long desired realization of some of his last classical compositions and arrangements of some of his old songs being played by a faithful, enthusiastic and gifted orchestral ensemble- that being the German chamber ensemble, 'Ensemble Modern', and having them performed in a fine concert hall in front of a highly appreciative audience.

Frank's last hurrah was this live album of some of his classical works. I adore FZ's rock & roll/jazz fusion efforts, but I must tip my hat to FZ's classical works. A magical album when I'm in the mood for this!

I truly miss Frank Zappa. He was so controversial but in the right way with his music. Truly a musical genius!
