2. Main Lines (A. von Schlippenbach)    24:48

Note 1: The instrumentation for "Main Lines" is taken from the Atatvistic CD - the instruments given in [...] were given in the text-file from the cd-r which I got through tradeing. My appreciation goes to G. - thank you for pointing out the discrepancy!
Note 2 : I have posted this recordings in the old comment section in November 2010 but it went nearly unrecognised if one counts the number of downloads...Enjoy.

Thanks onxidlib, one of the very few recorded traces of late belgian trumpet player Claude Deron. See the post (and comments from his former partner) on the Free Forms Sextet on my blog.

thanks for the music! I am still hoping that a recording of the GUO at the "Total Music Meeting" in Berlin, November 1968,
will show up too!
