Hey NetherMagic,

Oh if the Sun Flower is played by Yundi Li then it is composed by a Chinese composer whose name I certainly know but don't remember. I can check it out for you if you really want it.

Frankly I'm not that keen on Chinese composers, even though I am myself Chinese native to Hong Kong.

On the "Revolutionary" Etude by Chopin . . . I have been scratching my scalp figuring out why it is often called by the adjective instead of by the (grammatically more appropriate) noun - Revolution. ::)
