No, Mr. Zappa has not put on the powdered wig and white stockings. Instead he has dug up the music of another composer that shares his moniker. This is the music of Italian composer Francesco Zappa, who lived in Europe in the 1700s. The 20th century Zappa (Frank) saw fit to modernize the music of his namesake on his own personal electronic orchestra, The Barking Pumpkin Digital Gratification Consort. What this amounts to is something like Bach on synthesizers conducted (sort of) by the mad scientist of modern music--it's all very sweet and innocent but somehow you get the feeling there is something lurking under the surface with a smirking grin on his mustached face. For the Zappa fanatic, this is an unusual addition that must not be missed. For the classical fan, this is your only chance to experience this obscure baroque composer courtesy of the 20th century's most dramatic one.
