Description

Performed for the first time in 1992 at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, Frank Zappa’s masterpiece, The Yellow Shark inaugurates the Festival in its complete version with the 26 musicians of the Parco della Musica Contemporanea Ensemble conducted by Tonino Battista and the participation of David Moss, one of the most original vocalists in the world and already a performer of Zappa’s work.

The Yellow Shark is considered the highest synthesis of Frank Zappa’s creative intelligence, the expression of a musical thought that ranges freely across all genres, capable of merging orchestral score and improvisation, experimental rock and academic avant-garde, performance and interpretative detail.
