Notes About This Song
One of the 10 records FZ selected (in 1989) for the American radio show Castaway's Choice, hosted by John McNally. FZ said: "I think it is one of the most beautiful melodies ever written".
Nigey Lennon also mentions on page 103 of her book "Being Frank - My Time With Frank Zappa" that Zappa enjoyed listening to this work: "The first time I heard the main melody in the first movement of this thing, I almost (now don't laugh) cried," he said with a fierce shyness when he put on the record, just daring me to snicker."
