No cyclic Azemmour4 in the quoted problem.
Also, compare to:

The following problem is the most economical version of the Rope+Zilahi :
R.F.Zalokotskij and M.Kolesnik, Kudesnik 2009
4k3/4P3/4B3/1K1bS3/6s1/8/8/4R3 (5+3)
1.Sxe5, Bxd5 2.Sf7, Bc6# 1.Bxe6, Sxg4 2.Bf7, Sf6#
It is in the PDB without any label, of course there are other similar examples.
Rope+Zilahi+Chumakov+self block of the same square by different black pieces. A pleasant one.
Votre nouveau h # 2 est tr?s agr?able!
Et f?licitations pour la tourn?e gagner au Mont?n?gro!
Bonjour Rauf , Merci. C'est juste un exemple qui montre la forme cyclique ? 3 solutions. Je suis certain qu'on peut faire beaucoup mieux. Par contre , les sch?mas que j'ai mentionn? un peu en haut m?ritent des exemples concrets. J ai envoy? un exemple a Kaylan montrant une forme ? 4 solutions.
Le peuple resposible ? kobulchess.com doivent faire quelque chose ? propos de carictors alphabet fran?ais parce que certaines lettres ne seront pas visualiser.
It won the first prize in the Best Problems IT 20062007 but the ranking has been changed after the rough forerunner(#15) was discovered. In any case it deserved the first prize, I think.
Also in my opinion any h#2 with cyclic Zilahi+"Stocchi blocks" ( no matter whether crude or refined) should be seen as anticipated by the Vitaly's version, and despite some additions as in the following:
RodolfoRiva  practice about the 4th Azemmour theme
K7/1p1r2p1/1P1ppp1s/3kS2s/2pP1P1P/1qp2SQ1/2P2P2/8 (10+12)
h#2 3 solutions
1.Qxc2, Sc6 2.Qe4, Sb4#
1.Sxg3, cxb3 2.Se4, bxc4#
1.dxe5, Qxg7 2.e4, Qxd7#
Take a look at this
Valery had sent me this version via email on may 31 but he has refused to publish his work due to presence of my h#2 as a forerunner.
I have recently got his 'Ok' to publish this problem here in the comments.
A Letztform, I guess
By the way, the works in comments #5, #15 and #18 show also Balbo theme
So the discussion is more and more interesting. Waiting for the 4 solutions version by Abdelaziz (see #13), h#2.5 or more is the challenge but the FORMES IV, V, VI are not easy to achieve even in 2 moves.
