No, no. It is just my time is so limited nowadays. But a direct appeal 
for feedback cannot be ignored.

Because 2048 is 2^11, I would think.

I might be exaggerating a bit. I don’t like 20th Century “classical” 
music with maybe the exception of Benjamin Britain.
You should maybe give Mozart’s piano for 4 hands a listen. Bach and

Thank you for that. I have just spent about an hour listening to Marika 
Rökk. I loved this clip on you tube:

It works for me.

I wouldn't say that.
