musical homage to the life and work of Frank Zappa composed and performed
by Michael Kieran Harvey.
"Each of these ten pieces uses four or five ideas inspired by, reacting
to or developing some of Zappa's signature techniques. The conceit of
using the number 48 in the title, which refers to the great contrapuntal
cycle of JS Bach, is a playful dig at Zappa's professed antipathy to counterpoint,
though the use here of strict fugue form is completely arbitrary."
