Music is a meeting point for people whatever we think about politics, and you Marten are a great example of this. Great music and great playing as always.
Well said, thanks! Humans are humans and great art and music is great no matter from which geographical region it might originate. I love this music because it has such high artistic merits, that it happens to be from Russia is secondary. But I might add that since my mid teens I have had a great love for Russian novels, films, music and musicians. I think Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Tarkovsky, Mussorgsky, Skriabin, Rachmanoniv, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Richter, Gilels, Oistrakh, Rostropovitj are among the greatest artists ever so I was happy to find out that the guitar actually have a place in this tradition.
