Hello from Portugal
« on: April 05, 2020, 01:05:24 PM »
Hello there!

I have to divide a lot of my listening time with Jazz and Alternative Rock so plenty to discover in classical. I focused heavily on pianist work so now I'm trying to discover symphonic/orchestral works that, err, strike a chord with me :-)

I'm more interested in 19th and 20th century, I'm sorry but I really don't like Mozart and most of the classical period.

Hope to learn and share something also!

Welcome to the forum :). I’ve been more into generally alternative rock but have come via “classical” electronic and musique concrete to discover a few 20th century composers I really like.

Welcome from me too.
Your compatriot Joly Braga Santos is one of my favourite composers.
