  • The music heard is from the t-bone concerto by Johan de Meij, played by Christan Lindberg with Symphonic Wind Orchestra St. Michaël of Thorn, conductor Heinz Friesen.

  • Not to diminish the passing of Mr. Friesen, but how come you have yet to report on the death of major composer/arranger Theo Verbey?
