    What an exceptional disc! I will definitely purchase and investigate these composers more.

    • Glad you liked the music on this disc, these pieces are definitely worth repeated listening. The more of these podcasts I do, the more I realize there is a huge body of outstanding pieces that have only major trait in common – they are unknown.
