Hi all

Don Giovanni:
Hi everyone. I've been browsing through the forum for quite a while and I've finally decided to take part. I'm only 15 years old and my discovery of classical music only really began a year and a half ago. Since I'm obviously not in full time employment (or even part-time, for that matter) I have yet to amass a gargantuan CD collection but I'm pretty pleased with what I have got. My favourite composer is, unsurprisingly, Beethoven. My favourite works of his being the Late Quartets, Symphony No. 9, Violin Concerto and the late Piano Sonatas.

Despite being relatively new to classical music, I feel that my tastes have progressed quickly: at the moment the composers I am most interested in are: Webern, Berio, Nono, Schoenberg and Ligeti. There are still many gaps in my musical experience but they shall be filled as time goes on.

Anyway, I'm thoroughly looking forward to engaging in some lively banter and profound discussion with you all.

Wow, Don Giovanni, a very sophisticated list of composers there!  Welcome, and hope you enjoy yourself.  Lots of people here who like all the composers you mentioned (including me).  PS, from where are you writing?

Harry:
You are very welcome my friend, you will find many admirers here of Beethoven, I amongst them.
The modern ones you name, will not do with me, but still one Mod wil be very happy with that list.

Above: See I told you so! ;D

Don Giovanni:
Thank you all for your warm welcomes. Already in the last 5 minutes I've learned to love this forum. The main thing I like is its immediacy of response. On other forums - with fewer members - one has to wait for hours for a reply. Here, the reply is very sudden which makes the conversations more fluid.

bhodges, glad to hear you like some of the modern composers: they really need some sticking up for.

Harry, I'm writing to you from Windsor in the South East of England. Not too far from London (which gives me regular access to the opera house and various symphonies - lucky me  ;D). I'm sure many will know Windsor as the site of one of the main residences of Queen Elizabeth II: Windsor castle.
