Couscous Circe: As Circe, but the captured piece reappears on the Circe rebirth square of the capturing unit. Pawns reappearing on promotion squares are promoted instantly, at the choice of their own side.

AUW + Albino is itself a nice task. Matching the promotions and capturing piece is a great thematic addition! Well done!
Someone has to post it:
Thanks Dmitri. A great problem with an amazing twinning. 8 solutions! Nothing less to be expected when two great masters collaborate !!
There is also correspondence between black piece capturing and white piece promoted. Wonderful!
Thanks Mr. Antonio Garofalo.
Abdurahmanović is a great composer and the example given by Dmitri Turevski is a superb one.
However, in our problem both albino & AUW are integrated and occur cobinedly in 4 solutions.
