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 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
