'second-rank, but dull' carries a slightly different meaning.  8)

'second-rank, but dull according to me' should be the correct sentence.  ;D

Love that disc, too. Dubois is a second-rank, but high quality composer. The Palazatto BruZane book/discs is a very nice complement (3 discs), but I especially recommend this superb release from François-Zavier Roth-Les Siècles:



Thanks, André. I'll be checking that disc out soon!

Absolutely adore Martinů’s Magic Nights, but let’s not forget Nipponari as well, which is another gorgeous song cycle from him.

Ah yes, you've reminded me that I need to listen to Nipponari!
