I haven’t seen NikF in awhile. I hope he’s doing okay. Hopefully, he’ll be back soon. I still, also, lament Dancing Divertimentian. I hope he returns at some point.

I have not been here for a few yeas because I had nothing to post and then I forgot I was even a member here.  I found this site again by accident googling Dawn Upshaw not that I am a fan anymore but I was curious what she was up to now

Well, welcome back, Musician! Are you in fact a musician. and if so, what do you play?

Occasionally we do forget that most people here (not necessarily everyone) do have a life.

I'm not much around on GMG either (apparently I have a life ;)), but I noticed that Traverso recently deleted his account. That's a pity. :(

I was already wondering about his inactivity. Well over the many years I have been on GMG, many took the same road out, and eventually came back after a while. Lets hope our Dutch friend does the same. I know he lives in Groningen, but have no clue where, otherwise I might ask him why he left,
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Well, of course it doesn't matter where one lives in Groningen. It's The City of Cities anyway. :)

I did notice his inactivity but I had not realized that he had deleted his account. That is a shame and I will miss him. I do hope that he and his family are all well.

Traverso was a congenial, wise and knowledgeable presence. The last person you would want to see go.  :(

Wow...Traverso is gone?!?!? Unfathomable and a real pity. I enjoyed his contributions a lot. He and I shared a commonality amongst composers.

Thank you, Gentlemen.
Yeah, I came back up the road on Friday to attend the Leonskaja/Brahms D minor season closer (wonderful throughout - and in the adagio full and romantic and warm but no pushover) although soon it's back to business - or as aligreto accurately identified it 'taking time out to do my thing'.
Enjoy your listening and take it easy.

Good to see you’re alright, Nik. I hope things are continuing to get better for you.

I hope he’s well, and that no one has offended him.

He (Traverso) has been a regular poster at TC for some years under the username Traverso. But around the time he established an account at GMG, he changed his username at TC to Bourdon. He is still posting at TC under that name, latest post to day, so I suppose he is well.

IIRC, his posts were strictly about the music he listened to so there's little chance he could have been involved in a nasty controversy.
