introduction
« on: March 07, 2018, 05:41:27 AM »
I like to introduce myself,well I live in the Netherlands and one of my favorite musicians is Gustav Leonhardt. That said, it is clear that I have a great interest in Baroque music ,especially Germany and France.
Bach is my number one composer but I have also a great love for composers as Dufay and Ockeghem to name just two.
Chamber music and songs of Faure,Schubert, Brahms and Schumann ( and many others ) are also in my view.A bit reluctant I have listened to the music of Ligeti,Messiaen,Dutilleux and I am happily to say that I enjoyed it very much but it has not the same attraction .Beethoven,Brahms,Bruckner,Strauss ( all of them)Mahler and opera but not so frequent.

Well,that is it for now,I have seen many members that I have seen in another place so I am not completely alone here.

Hello Traverso

Welcome to this forum. Hope you will enjoy the community here.

I think I recognize you from another forum, and I know that we share tastes to a large extent.
