    Guilty as charged, nop Some, I haven't. Don't mean to be rude but you must admit this joke was so natural in this particular case.
    Btw, I happened to be in NY when Kirov/Gergiev performed at Carnegie Hall, the concert was great and I think I saw Lola Astanova there too, gosh she is so striking! Knowing the story of Anna Netrebko I immediately thought Did Gergiev find another Netrebko?

    Hahaha, we are agreed, the joke was perfectly natural.

    And we are also agreed that Anna Netrebko and Lola Astanova are a couple of hotties.

    Now go listen to some Dumitrescu, dammit!! (Oh, it's fun.)

    You mean is Some Guy's name Iancu Dimitrescu? If you read my perfectly natural comment you'd see that I was the one to make fun of this composer. But yeah, I am rather funny, that's what my mom thinks anyway...
    Ok, Some guy if you agree with me on the subject of Netrebko/Astanova hotness I am going to go to youtube and try to listen to something.

    Glad,

    Unfortunately, the web has not picked up on Iancu much, yet.

    Partly that's my fault. Eventually my site will have dozens of clips of his and Ana-Maria Avram's music. But not yet.

    So far, I have only a two minute clip (it looks like it's four, but it's only two) of the same thing you can find on Amazon.

    So go to Amazon for one minute, or Asymmetry Music Magazine for two minutes. That's all I know about after about ten minutes of searching.

    Michael

    Hi Michael, It took me a while to get to it. His music is not very generic asymmetric music. I found things I liked, but in general it's not the music that I would frequently listen.
    I saw a recent Steinway magazine, did you know Steinway apparently makes watches? Not sure when they started, I guess it makes sense. Fascinating articles and profiles on young and established people, in particular interesting article about Leon Fleischer, I love his Beethoven interpretations and, of course, they did a profile on Lola. I am more and more intrigued by her

    I think the playing here is technically impeccable, glad to see classical artists turning to the old tradition of using popular themes for variations. Too much for purists to take? ( I consider myself one, somewhat...)

    It seems that there are two threads on Lola Astanova.

    Perhaps they should be merged?
