What an excellent list of instruments.

Horst said...

Booooooombastic release, herzlichen Dank! Though the concerts were commissioned by the super-dry Goethe-Institut, the Music is lively, curious, and just fine.

They are still live - it's too big to divide into 200mb files for Zippyshare

Hi Nick, First part is stunning, thank you, but I can't download the 2nd part. Please reup GF-2 if you can.

anticredos said...

both rapidshare links now working for me. Thank you. There's a new archive Hartmut Geerken release on Holiday Records called 'Live in Kabul 1976' I've just ordered it!

Hello, is there any chance of a re-post of these? I know it's a big set of files, but it would be most appreciated.
