Description

On March 12, 1993 the Meridian Arts Ensemble performed these pieces for Mr. Zappa at his home in Los Angeles. The composer worked with us by critiquing the performance, making corrections in the arrangements, and giving suggestions for future interpretations. As is the case with all modern music performed by the MAE, this composer/performer collaboration has allowed us to function as a direct link between Frank Zappas music and audiences around the world. We feel very fortunate to have worked with him, and to have received his support for our continuing to adapt his work for this ensemble….

Press reviews

Concertzender

Na het beluisteren van Smart Went Crazy heb je het gevoel -toe maar!- dat je leven niet meer hetzelfde is. (…) (…) Klassiek, rock, blues, jazz, salza: de benepen hokjesgeest wordt aan het einde van de twintigste eeuw door het Meridian Arts Ensemble de concertzalen uitgeblazen.

Lynn Watson

(…) An intriguing musical melange (…)

Tubas Journal

A unique recording has hit the marketplace (…) The Horn Call, May 1994 The playing on the disc is wonderful, the feeling this group provides to the music is superb. (…) This is a disc to be savoured over and over. It is a must.

Classical CD Guide

this is a cross over album par excellence (…)

Luister

Als totaal een uiterst prikkelend geheel, dat iedere seconde overtuigd door de enorme technische n, veel belangrijker, spirituele toewijding waarmee de musici te werk gaan. (…) Een ware voltreffer (…)

CD Review

One thing’s certain: There is nothing standard or even predictable in this program. (…) maybe even Zappa never sounded better (…)

The Wire (England)

There is a higher density of worthwhile composition here than on the average Kronos release.

Sterophile

essential collection (…)
