While visiting the University of Berkeley library in 1983, Frank Zappa looked up his own name in the New Grove Dictionary. What he found was a few lines about Francesco Zappa, an eighteenth-century Milanese composer. Frank identified with his predecessor and released the Baroque-tinged Francesco Zappa. Today, in exchange for that favor, it’s Zappa’s Revenge, with classical transcriptions and performances of classic Frank Zappa pieces, alongside pieces by Francesco Zappa.
