  • I liked the Filipino and Swiss pieces equally. The Nigerian piece was very pleasant, but the Canadian piece was rather tense and seemed to take itself very seriously. Tiring, so I voted for the Nigerian composer. I liked the Spanish and Costa Rican pieces equally: the Spanish was rhythmically interesting, and the Costa Rican perhaps more beautiful.

  • Great – thanks for listening, and for getting in touch. It’s great to hear people’s opinions on the music!
