The most brilliant of Belgian composer César Franck's compositions were written during the final decade of his life; the Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra, the famous Violin Sonata, the D major String Quartet, and, perhaps most important, the Symphony in D minor are all the products of a single, remarkable five-year period. The Symphony, by no means an immediate success with critics or audiences, has nevertheless become so fused with the popular image of César Franck that it is nearly impossible to think of him without also thinking of this 40-minute orchestral juggernaut.

"Caesar Franck before Caesar Franck," allow one legitimately to ask what this means. Simple, reader friend: these are pieces of organ that the master wrote in his first maturity, before his final language developed as found in his Symphony, his great works for piano or his Sonata For violin and piano. Most of these works for organ were not published during his lifetime but only around 1905 by his son, some even rediscovered here a few years. It is therefore well Franck organist famous before Franck famous composer who is presented here, knowing that every organist of good quality has to write and improvise for his instrument; And that even before himself, Franck was already seriously exploring Franck's style. Elke Völker plays an impressive Cavaillé-Coll, the neo-gothic basilica Notre-Dame de Bonsecours near Rouen; The instrument was inaugurated in 1857, precisely the period at which Franck wrote these works.

Named the Un-Concert by Zappa himself, the various live recordings featured on this CD come from a host of venues played by Frank and his then-mothers during their 1973 tours of the US, Canada and Australia. In large part recorded between June and December that year, Mother Superior Frank then chose to provide WLIR-FM New York with his own reels to broadcast this selection of rare diamonds across the airwaves on New Year s Eve 1974. The results are quite astonishing as can now be heard on this CD, featuring the entirety of the Zappa reels as were transmitted on that now legendary radio show. Featuring the kind of audio quality Zappa himself would always insist on, this remarkable collection of tracks features the superb musicianship of Frank Zappa, Jean-Luc Ponty, Tom Fowler, Ralph Humphrey, Ruth Underwood, Ian Underwood, George Duke, Bruce Fowler and Sal Marquez, who in unison make for possibly the most accomplished group Zappa ever employed.
