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."
