    I'm starting to believe that he was better than everyone at everything except at having a better taste than mine.

    Does anyone know why all the Schnittke recordings on the Internet have such a low volume despite being high bitrate?

    губайдулина так себе. у неё там ни гармонии, ни новаторства особого. это как если Бродского на Маяковского заменить

    всегда считал его переоцененным, такой музыкальный аналог бродского. и да, губайдулина круче
