Imagine, playfully ...

Alfred Schnittke


  1. I like the music very much but I find the images quite disturbing. I had never heard of Schnittke. I'm deeply impressed by what I read on Vikipedia. I'm wondering why he is not better known in the contemporary music world. I'll listen to a few more of his works on YouTube. Thanks, Sean.

  2. Claude,
    for me the 'disturbing' images are perfectly fitting.
    I suppose many people have never heard of Schnittke, and never they will ... although he is (at least) mentioned in wikepedia.
    If now I do imagine how many impressive people I'd not come to know, even when reading each wikepedia entry ...
