1992—Esa-Pekka Salonen

Jim Farber, "Letter From L.A.: The Philharmonic Checks In, 200 Motels," San Francisco Classical Voice, October 21, 2013

So the story goes, when Esa-Pekka Salonen began his long and productive association with Los Angeles Philharmonic, he sought out Frank Zappa, primarily with the idea of organizing a concert tour to his native Finland where, he told Zappa, he and the Mothers had a substantial following. As Gail Zappa recalls, Frank would have loved to accept the offer but was forced to decline because (it had not been made public) he was slowly dying from prostate cancer.
