Greetings all

(1/5) > >>

foxandpeng:
Wanted to finally say hello after being a long time lurker of about 5 years. I guess I want to say thank you for all the help over the years. I don't post, because I'm not a musician in any way, shape or form, and have never felt I have much to contribute of value. I'm by no means a new listener to serious music, but always feel like a comparative beginner.

Your corporate wisdom and pointers are immensely useful!

vandermolen:
Welcome to you! I hope that you enjoy your time here. I'm not a musician either - can't read a note of music. All I recall from early music lessons is deliberately knocking the end off my recorder to annoy the bad-tempered music teacher. None of this, however, stops me rambling on and on here about music and my favourite composers. So, I hope that you will be encouraged to comment as well. Who are your favourite composers/musicians?

Welcome aboard! I’m a musician but with limited sight-reading ability. :D I can still read percussion notation rather well, though, but I learned this early on when I was in the school band. Anyway, don’t feel afraid to post more often. Another viewpoint is always welcomed here.

foxandpeng:
Thanks for being so gracious.

My favourite composers vary like the British weather, to be honest.Lots of Scandinavians and other Northern Europeans, and mostly from the Romantic period onwards.

Most of the last week has been in symphonies by Vaughan Williams, Giya Kancheli and Georges Onslow, and poking around in different Bruckner cycles.

I did have account here up until 2013 as Pencils, but have no idea of my password, and haven't felt brave enough to post for a long while anyway. I do enjoy learning from you all, though!

Thanks for your warmth, both...

OrchestralNut:
Welcome to GMG, and we are very happy to hear from you.  I'm glad you decided to post.   :)

Also not a musician and know nothing of music other than the simple fact that I enjoy it.

Keep listening and posting as you wish.  8)
