  1. Absolutely brilliant capture of the composer and the heart and soul of his art! The editing of his words and music into the cohesive magic that is Maestro Eric Funk was simply spectacular. Phillip Aaberg was the perfect, “on-point” host who played a flawless interview duet with Eric. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

    • Thank you Dr. Seitz,   I will pass your kind comments on to Philip.   Best regards,   Patty
