Welcome, dhibbard, and hope you enjoy yourself here. I love music from the regions you mention, and there are many other fans here as well.

And a Texas "ex-pat" here - now in New York!

Hi to you! I am an admirer of many Baltic/Scandinavian composers. Tubin, Raid, Madetoja, Sibelius, Ciurlionis, Atterberg, Petterson, Peterrson-Berger, Egge etcetc.

Welcome dhibbard! As I've noticed from your posts over at the Art-Music Forum, we have quite similar tastes. Hope you enjoy your time here!  :)

Howdy, dhibbard. Greetings from a L.A. Lady living in Vienna, Austria. Welcome to the forum.  8)

Whereabouts are you in Texas? I myself have a little bit to do with the Lone Star State. I was living there in 1978 when I was in the Air Force, first in San Antonio for basic training and then up in Wichita Falls at Sheppard AFB for my technical training. Then there is Anson Jones, the 4th President of the Republic of Texas, who is my 6th cousin 4 times removed.

Great to see you here too, after all those really fine posts on the Art-Music Forum! Tallinn has a special place in my heart, bought so many CDs and music there in the early 1990s, especially at the corner of the Pikk Jalg (edit: Nunne 1 it was, I think).  :)
