    The Swedish composer Garmarna with his composition 'Gamen (the Vulture)'

    Note especially the interplay between the violinist and the vocalist. A spirited performance.

    I am familiar with that piece. The Video and Playing of Bream were very nice.

    I hope to get around to hearing these contributions.

    Thanks for introducing me to Wim Mertens. He reminds me of the improvisations of George Winston.

    Elegant, simple, very memorable. My wife loves this kind of music. The Fosse I liked.

    You're welcome - and I don't know George Winston so perhaps I should check out his work.

    Oh, people always say something "reminds" them of something else.

    I think Merten is better.

    It was supposed to be a joke. Its effectiveness was diminished somewhat by the omission of a url. It is a great song, though.
