Good. Nice round figure of 64 !
40 and 20 are also exactly such numbers! Without approximation.. 🙂 I like it!
Perhaps a list of participating composers will be interesting for us and useful confirmation for them !
I don’t mind to publish it if it is right thing to do.. 🙂
Will be added later today in case of no objections! Thanks!
O-ops! I’m sorry, I’ve made a mistake – 39 authors! And a funny thing is that I’ve counted you, Seetharaman, twice! I’ve written about it to Petko, who answered me that it’s ok as you are worthy even of 3! 🙂
Anyway, I’ve added the list of participants to this post, or you can see it right from my comment by this link:
Quite a formidable list containing the names of almost all the leading composers. Anyone would be honored to win an award in such an illustrious company !
I agree with Seetharaman.
Julia’s Fairies first thematical tourney has got almost all top composers and few less famous composers like me 🙂
I’m honoured to be in same tourney with these top composers … Let’s see what happens..
Yes, some not so famous but I believe no less talented ! 🙂
I am so happy for you Julia – the tourney looks very succesfull with so many great composers and I believe many great compositions, which is result of your hard work on this nice website, which is very interesting and useful!
Diyan, thank you! I’m so happy myself! So many warm words, so great support of the tourney! I just can’t find more words to tell what I feel! I wish to all participants to be the same happy!!
