The Genius of Irreverence of Genius

From the psychedelia of the 60's to the late classical compositions of the 80's: the music of Frank Zappa defies categorization.  Selections from his decades-long career form a program that highlight Zappa's penchant for complexity and ingenuity, drawing from styles that run the gamut of musical expression.  Marked by irreverant humour and remarkable sophistication, Zappa's rich stew of musical creation - from rock to jazz to classical - will be explored with the respect and affection he reserved for his many influences.
