Kernis is such a shitty composer

disagree with the gold medal

add sasha (alexander) yakovlev ,jae won cheung,evgeny cheraponov (or whatever his name is)
da tristan iz a legendary mofo though…did prick 2 and rach3 simultaneously in 2 weekz

Apart from a great Scrib 4 Gulyak hasn’t really impressed me musically. Although to be fair to her, I only know her playing via youtube maybe this isn’t representative.

zhe iz very very good penizt…duz nothin,but practizin tru.

AHAHAHAH da diarrhea 8)
