  1. Actually, Spotify doesn't have this quite complete: the disc with the ninth symphony (listed first on the Bis page) isn't present. But thanks for the playlist.

  2. Thanks, the BIS page only listed 24 titles so I thought it was complete. Will add that album when it become available.

  3. Thanks much for this playlist. I only knew a few Schnittke pieces and there are some gems in this list, particularly the Cello Concerto No. 1.

  4. This is cool blog with the best articles, just found what i was looking for. Well Written and Structured Blog. Totally a fan of your writing. Independence Day Speech in Telugu
