Hello everyone.

Hello everyone, thank you for letting me in. I've been "into" classical music for most of my life, but only in the last few years started to explore it properly and found many more composers of both genders that are wonderful to listen to.

Welcome, Fred!

I hope you will enjoy your stay on this forum. Absolutely, classical music is an inexhaustible universe of wonders.
Give us something else; give us something new; for Heaven's sake give us something bad, so long as we feel we are alive and active and not just passive admirers of tradition!

Welcome aboard!
The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.

-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
