I have just finished an arrangement of four Zappa pieces - "Number 6", "Number 7", "Number 8", and "Number 9" - for eight performers, to be premiered by the fabulous ABSTRAI ensemble at their next concert, sometime in early 2019.

Now, to my knowledge, not only have these four pieces never been played together in the same concert, but particularly "Number 9" has never been performed in its entirety (however many performances there may have been of "Outside Now" or "Outside Now Again"). The only circulating recording of this piece is in the Culver City #1 rehearsal tape (as "Outside Now Variations"), but then again, the band never really gets to the end of the piece.

So, am I right in assuming this will be the WORLD PREMIERE of "Number 9"? I figure if there ever was a public performance of this piece, someone here should know.

Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the replies.

So no one knows the answer to my question, eh? I'll just assume my assumption is right and tell them to anounce it as a world premiere Wink

I assume hoops is assuming a rightly formed assumption on yetanother's original assumptioness, that I am sure is OK to assume, since nobody seems to know. In any case, it is very cool you are bringing these to live.

Well, a premiere date has now been fixed... details will be online soon, and the program will also include my arrangement of "Time Is Money", a special last-minute commission from the ensemble to close the concert Wink

Time is Money is a favorite of mine. I look forward to (hopefully) hearing it.
