Composer: Frank Zappa

The Concertzender 25: Music of 1983.
In 1983 the London Symphony Orchestra was in the studio for three days to record seven orchestral works by Frank Zappa. This resulted in an LP entitled London Symphony Orchestra Vol.1 in that same year and Vol. 2 followed in 1987. Today you will hear all these works alternated with pieces from The Man From Utopia, an LP Zappa also issued in 1983.
