Hello everyone,
I'm not precisely a new member of this forum, since I used to post here some years ago under the same nickname; after a long absence, I decided to come back and as I hadn't written an introduction post the first time I joined GMG, I'll write it now.
My name is Ilaria and I'm from Italy; I've always loved classical music since I was very young and because of that, I learnt to play the piano and some musical theory. I especially appreciate the composers of the Romantic and Late Romantic period, as a matter of fact, some of my favourites are Wagner, Liszt, Beethoven, Mahler, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Richard Strauss as well as the Strauss Family, Brahms and Bruckner; but I also love Mozart, Ravel, Debussy, Holst, Sibelius, Nielsen, Chopin, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and many others, because, as it was said, music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.
About conductors, I'm a great admirer of Herbert von Karajan, who, in my opinion, was able to express the beauty and passion of music like no other; but Bernstein and Carlos Kleiber were giants as well.
A warm greeting.  :)

I just returned to the group from an eight-year absence myself, and I definitely remember you from my first time around. ;D

So much great music, so little time...

Glad to see that you have returned! I remember you from olden times. I have been here for longer than I can remember, although I have been absent for periods of time and have not always had the same username.

Welcome back, Ilaria! We share very similar tastes in music.
Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable.

I love the vast surface of silence; and it is my chief delight to break it.
