Bernhard Gal - Newsletter II/2010

Dear friends and colleagues,

for various (good) reasons, 2010 has proven to offer
a quite different path than previous years.

...in other words, less concert tours and transcontinental travels,
and more time dedicated to composition, reflection, research,
studio work and documentation.
