This is dedicated to the man who I consider my great friend, my awesome confidant, a phenomenal mentor, and a fine role model in my life. The one and only Maestro Abelardo Galang II. Sit back and relax, as you listen to his rendition of Robert Schumann’s Kreisleriana and a Japanese folk song, Jidai, which were from his album “Schumann-Chopin Abelardo Galang II Piano” released between July and August 2004.
Moreover, as you can tell from the pictures I have put on here, they were all from my travels in Budapest, Prague, London, Salzburg, Toronto, Munich, Amsterdam, Carwitz, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and, of course, Berlin.
Here is a rundown of how this is all tracked.
