Title: Hello, music fellows!
Post by: SymphonicAddict on June 11, 2019, 01:04:46 am
Hi everyone!

Maybe some know me from the GMG forum. I've been logged on this forum for more than a year, but just now I've decided to introduce myself (a bit late, I know!). Furthermore, I've downloaded some interesting stuff many kind members have uploaded here, so thank you all for such generosity, there have been some very rare recordings I've appreciated enormously.

I'm an ardent classical music fan, I literally breath that music, for me, there is no any kind of music that reaches such levels of majesty and profoundity more than that one. My tastes span, mostly, from Baroque to this century, with a marked emphasis on Romanticism, late-Romanticism and 20th Century, being the symphony my absolute favorite classical form. Some of my favorite composers are Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Berlioz, Puccini, Dvorak, Rimsky-Korsakov, Elgar, Janacek, Taneyev, Nielsen, Sibelius, Glazunov, Strauss, Bruckner, Mahler, Saint-Saens, Schmitt, Roussel, Bantock, Schubert, Vaughan Williams, Schmidt, Respighi, Bax, Szymanowski, Langgaard, Hindemith, Zemlinsky, Reger, Rachmaninov, Khachaturian, Poulenc, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Tubin, Atterberg, Alwyn, Rubbra, Stenhammar, Holmboe, Villa-Lobos, Barber, Copland, Hanson, Madetoja, Penderecki, Lutoslawski, and many, many more!!!  ;D (sorry for the extensive list  :D )

Whenever possible I'll be sharing my views on different topics.

Thank you!

Cheers, Jeffrey!! Oh, how could I leave Miaskvosky out? Thanks for reminding me of him, very worth mentioning.

I think so, but actually, I hardly ever check that forum. Anyway, thank you!
