Hello to all
« on: October 09, 2017, 09:02:40 AM »
Hello everyone on the forum.
I am a returning classical music fan. As a teenager I listened to lots of my fathers classical music records and wore a good few out or there wasn't much high frequency left on them. I have returned to classical music after an absence of forty years or more.
I like some Bach, Mozart, Handel etc. I also like organ music and violin music a lot. I am very interested in sound reproduction.
I have a query that I will put in correct section but thought I would say hello.

Welcome aboard! Whether you take a 3 month absence or a 40-year absence from classical music, it always finds a way back to you if you’re moved by it. To be quite honest, I never thought I was ever going to be a classical listener or fan of the music, but I became deeply fascinated by it and it was only then that this love affair truly began. It’s never too late to start listening again and I can only hope you continue to come back to this forum and converse with all of us. There are many amazingly knowledgeable members here (myself excluded here of course as I still don’t know anything about this music :)) that anything you’re interested in, you’ll find someone who’s interested in the same composer or musician, etc. also. Enjoy your time here!
