The Ensemble Modern is the modern music ensemble in question and the performances were directed by conductor Peter Rundell under the overall supervision of FZ. The result is a collection of performances the quality of which is unsurpassed in Frank's previous outings with other folks performing his 'classical' compositions. Add to this Frank's production skills and you have an outstanding sounding compact disc as well.
I would consider this CD absolutely essential for anyone serious about
the music of Frank Zappa or about music and it's presentation at all.
This might not be the 'perfect' Frank Zappa classical album but I bet it
is as good as we are likely to get.
