The Bells 2 is being shipped end of this week.
for our American Members it will take a little longer as the copies first will be shipped in one pack and then distributed to everyone there.
I can tell you it will be worth the wait!!!

To wet your appetite a quote from one of the articles in The Bells II:

"To my great pleasure, he sat down at his piano again, picked up one of my Chinese harmonizations from the pile and put it on the piano stand. Then, without taking his eyes off this example, he slowly began to merge the chord sequences of two different systems – quartal and tertian. Depending on the acceptability of the sound, he was mumbling: ‘it has to be this way, for instance…or, maybe this way… Oh, no, perhaps that is worse’. Rachmaninoff played these chord progressions with increasing boldness, gradually adding some uncomplicated ornamentation to the harmonic pattern, making it sound more pianistic".
