Hi, can I just ask you who the composer is of the very first piece on this playlist i.e. ´Links´? Fantastic playlist, great motivator for us university students. ;) Thanks.

it is a japanese composer Joe Hisaishi (Mamoru Fujisawa). he is well-known for his respective work with Hayao Miyazaki and Takeshi Kitano, having composed many of the scores for their films.
thanks for listening and your kind words! so glad to know that this mix can be as a moticator for students ;))

Oh, really! I didn´t realize that this was Hisaishi! I am a huge fan of Miyazaki, so this is pretty cool! Thank you for your reply. You really know your way around classical/classical contemporary music. ;)

Mmmm, loved this long and beautiful mix!
Your instrumental version of the Léo Delibes-'Flower Duet' was wonderful and new to me, as many other tunes.
My fav is the last tune from the so creative and important Terry Riley. Merci ! ☆★✫

thanks a lot for listening! I like Léo Delibes and all variations around his amazing music. I have a weakness for music of Romanticism era.
Yes, exactly! Last tune is very crative and hypnotizing. When I firstly met this track I immediately decided that it musr be in the end of some future mix ;)

Curious fact: The song 'Fish Beach' by Michael Nyman was originally used in the film 'The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover' with Helen Mirren. A very Avant-garde film c:

as I know, Michael Nyman worked with the director Peter Greenaway in his most important films (Drowning By Numbers, ZOO, The Draughtsman's Contract...). they form a perfect ensemble!
