Hello.

I am a long time listener since about 1968 with tastes ranging from medieval music all the way to music of the present century. Though I lean heavily toward the usual big names, Beethoven, Bach, Bruckner, Sibelius, Brahms, etc., I also enjoy a lot more obscure composers. For example I've just recently acquired some orchestral work by Icelandic composer Jón Leifs. Fascinating stuff.

I suppose you could consider me a refugee from another forum I've been enjoying for eight years, but recently I've found it emotionally hard to take -- not through any fault of the site's owners, moderators or users in any way! If there is fault it is entirely mine.

I just wanted to try a different environment, possibly a different perspective on the music we all love so deeply. As I'm sure you can imagine, in Tennessee it's hard to find people of like mind to share the experience of this music.

So here I am if you will have me, with an identity a little different from that of the previous place, one a little closer to real life in that I am, or at least was at one time, an illustrator. I have of course already looked around a bit. I like what I see.

Cheers!

Welcome aboard from someone who also enjoys exploring composers outside the 'Great Composer Racket', looking forward to seeing your comments on the forum.
