    Extremely sensitive yet no-holds-barred powerful! :shock: It reminds me of Krytschof Jablonski (I hope I spelled it right).

    Honored to have you here!

    Jovan,

    Why does Ratimir not submit his recordings himself ? Are you his agent, or familiy, or what ?

    Dear techneut,

    I am his friend.Ratimir doesn't have much time, so he asked me to do it.

    I am glad you like his playing.I can post some youtube links if it's ok, so you can watch his classical videos.

    Dear Site Admin,

    How much time does it take to list a pianist on your listing page?

    Best,

    Jovan

    Usually, we put up recordings within a week but I guess in this case we were a bit hesitated that the pianist himself did not make the submission which is very uncommon.

    Both submitted recordings are of very high quality!

    The Chopin etude is played very musical and not like many other piansits who just rips it off like it was a technical contest. The only thing that bothers me is the strange clips in the beginning which must be the result of someone mistake in the recording process.

    The difficult Rachmaninov Op.16 no.2 (check left hand) is played very good too and an amateur like myself has nothing really to add here as it is obvious that the interpretation is very well planned and executed.

    The recordings are up on the site as well as Ratimir himself. I created a link to his home page too at the bottom of the biography.

    There is a lot of other recordings present on his site as well. Are there more who he would like us to host?

    Also, does he know Irina Klyuev who also is from Montenegro?

    The reason I would rather host them and not link is to not take down the general impression regarding site performance. I noticed that download was slow from Ratimir's site (10-15 kb/s) while we have 100 Mbit/s which often give me download speed of well over 200 kb/s.

    Dear robert,

    Sorry for delayed reply.Ratimir said that he does not know that Irina, and that he is very grateful for what you've done for him.Pretty soon, i will have a list of mp3 files that he wants to share so i will put the music on his server and i can notify you if you want.

    Best wishes,

    Jovan
