Event summary:

Frank Zappa composed Yellow Shark in 1992 especially for Ensemble Modern. Tom Waits described it as one of his favourite works, writing “the ensemble is awe-inspiring.

It is a rich pageant of texture and colour. It’s the clarity of his perfect madness, and mastery. Frank governs with Elmore James on his left and Stravinsky on his right. Frank reigns and rules with the strangest tools.”

For the first time in Australia, musicians of Ensemble Modern perform Zappa’s Yellow Shark with the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) in a concert that promises to be a thrilling experience for musicians and audience alike.
