Hello from Spain
« on: January 07, 2021, 03:17:15 AM »
Dear all,
I'm Javi from Barcelona, Spain. I just found this wonderful forum of classical music and I want to join this community. I'm currently listen to Niccolò Paganini, his virtuosity made my head explodes, there are moments that I can't imagine how could he plays some melodies like the famous Capriccio No.5. I hope I can learn a lot of everybody!

Hello, Javi, and welcome. Since you like Paganini, I hope you've heard violinist Augustin Hadelich, who recently recorded all of the Caprices. Here he is in No. 5, recorded at home during the quarantine. In any case, hope you enjoy your time here.

Tío, como si hablais paja... rusa.

Russian aged 77? rusa77? Sorry if I'm being rude or offensive or curious. Just I want to say you: Welcome! (and to know what rusa77 means).  8)

Rusa means Ru=Rubio Sa=Sanz, they are my surnames, about 77 just a random number, I pick it because I already have my email like that.

Thanks everyone for your welcome.
