My first post here... greetings.
« on: August 15, 2017, 04:07:44 AM »
Greetings.

Lifelong classical music fan.  I love all periods from early music to contemporary, but my least favorite is the classical period.  Here to discuss and share the passion of classical music, and also to learn new things and find some exposure to music that's new to me.

Thank you for allowing me to be a member.

Kind regards,

It's OK, since the Classic Era is all I listen to, we have the bases covered in spades. Welcome aboard, you have many kindred spirits here. 0:)

Welcome from France !

The classical period did not last more than 50 years which his a speck of dust in the history of classical music.  So you still have a lot to choose from !  The backtrack web site tracks all the concerts that are given all over the world.  According to their stats the lost performed music is the romantic period followed by 20th century music.  So you see you are right in the mainstream..

Many thanks, Gurn.  I said that period was my least favorite, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to it.  I do indeed; my favorite works from period are the Haydn string quartets.

Thanks for the kind words of welcome.

Good question.  I love most 20th- / 21st-century composers with the exception of the Minimalist school.  Two of my favorites have recently (or semi-recently) died: Elliott Carter and Schnittke.  So while I still hear their work as "contemporary," they sadly are not.

Of late, I've also been listening to the Ferneyhough string quartet box set (Arditti).
