Peter Gall, who has already shown his luminosity in so many ways while
participating in a projects of others, has proven to be an
superb composer and good rope personality with his really initial work of
his own. Together with his dream team, a all-star quintet starring

companion a strain structures are, they are simultaneously
powerful, sparkling and simply combined to take in and enjoy. Many
