'Revised Music For Guitar And Low Budget Orchestra' is
my favourite piece.

Recently by chance, I met the Viola player from the acclaimed
Lendvai StringTrio.

I felt it was my duty to expand their insight of modern composers,
suggesting they play 'Revised Music For Guitar And Low Budget Orchestra'
with their own arangement.

Nothing might ever happen,but I tried.

What are you all doing to about Zappa's classical stuff?

I for one do not care for Frank's classical music. But I wouldn't put it down to others.

Sampling it for hip hop beats.

I listen to it with a great deal of interest and enjoyment and tell people that it's pretty good.

My latest revelation is the orchestral Sinister Footwear from 1984 (Berkeley), which I downloaded from iTunes.That version is far from perfect, sonically and otherwise - but it shows that it's an amazing and unique piece which in a good sounding, optimal performance would reveal itself as a true masterpiece of 20th Century composed music.

But the piece is so damn hard to play, and Berkeley 1984 was such a financial disaster (I gather), that I fear many more eons will pass before we get that beauty right.

The Ensemble Modern recording of 'Revised Music....low budget orchestra'
(on YouTube) is totally brilliant and to my ear, very accurate.

I have been playing his classical work backwards looking for
secret messages.....I found one for sure.

He seems to say ... "There are 5 things in life you need
to know, and I know 2 of them!'
Can't remember which piece though.
