A FAST 15 MINUTES: Is it better in English?
A 15 minute programme of familiar songs sung in a language other than that in which they were written. The global village goes pop, in its own words.

Con Fowler - May 15, 2024

Hi, years ago I used to get out from Whangarei library, a tape called Koto Mozart, which had massed koto playing European classical music. I assumed some type of plucked string instrument by the sound [ pre internet ] . Versions of Eine Kleine Nachtmusic, Swan Lake etc. Sounded fantastic, but I have never been able to find it since. I dont suppose you know it, or have access to it?
Thanks, Con
