Sheet Music: Score
48 Fugues for Frank #8 : Ruth is sleeping / Michael Kieran Harvey.
by Michael Kieran Harvey (2009)
48 Fugues for Frank is a homage to Zappa in 10 movements for solo piano.
Each of the 10 pieces uses four or five ideas inspired by, reacting to, or developing some of Zappa's signature techniques. The sub-titles offer a very tenuous guide to Zappa's musical influence on each piece.
