Greetings from Canada
« on: November 12, 2020, 11:51:27 AM »
Hello everyone! I am a longtime aficionado of classical music who has listened to a great deal of it in my leisure time. I appreciate composers of many styles and time periods but have a particular fondness for the later Baroque and Classical. I look forward to some enjoyable discussions with you of the music we appreciate.

Welcome aboard! There’s plenty of fans of the Baroque and Classical Eras here. Out of curiosity, what part of Canada are you from?

Greetings with sturm und drang.

How often we used to see him pounding away on his piano in a jerky and continually increasing fortissimo ... something by Bach, Beethoven, or Schumann! After a time, more or less prolonged, the deafening noise sank to a murmur, then silence—the master had found an idea. -d'Indy on Franck
