    • no roman…thank you for pointing my attention on it. I forgot to mention, that’s a new rip with the BB…you can see it on the date of the archives and files. Now the intro is corrected

  1. thank you Rachmaninov.
    I’m not an music expert, not even an amateur – I just like listening, and that is an ability that takes time, dedication, and something more difficult: full awareness of the music[2]
    I was curious about “The Death Of Ase” – how the repetition of the same theme could be sustained for long: but it can. It reminded me of something you may know: “The Invisible Cities” – the same theme: a traveler arrives at a city, and each time, even if for the same traveler, a different one…
    be well Rachmaninov.

    P.S. get used to it: sometimes I talk to much 🙂

  2. Mi piace sempre ascoltare i compositori nordici. Ne amo le sonorita, soprattutto le atmosfere. Molto gradito questo disco.

  3. I’m at a loss for words to describe the marvelous four dimensional sound – length, breadth, height and depth – what an emotional audio experience.

    I have nothing but admiration for what you do, and I’m as grateful as a cat with a saucer of fresh milk right from the cow’s udder. Bravo, our friend!


    • ahahahah 😉 Bob, your comments are so fine, so funny…you should collect them all and release a book !!!!! Thank you, man…
