Hello all,
i am thrilled to join this forum.
seems like I should have joined a long time ago..
i am doing music all my life, not professionally though.
like many types of music.
find it facsinating to "discover" compositions of well known composers, which where hidden from me till their discovery.
I sometimes think what makes a specific piece of music liked by me, and the special event and significance of the First Listening.

Welcome and enjoy!
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

Welcome aboard, Noam!
