    My heart and my brain are so desirous of talking Classical Music with others. The lewd, the crude, and the vulgar have become the staples of society, and my soul is hungry for nourishment and intelligent conversation and sharing.
    I purchased an IPAD in March of 2013, and am not completely tech-savvy yet! My favorites in Classical Music are Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Mendelsohn, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak. Not too much modern, except for Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein. Not at all a fan of senseless noise. What do you like?

      Julie, ooh, you came to the right place! I’m nodding with agreement on all the composers you mentioned. I just posted a blog on Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” yesterday (http://www.theclassicalgirl.com/clair-de-lune-oceans-eleven/) and have talked about his “Beau Soir” and his Quartet in G-minor. Am crazy about those. I’m also a huge Chopin fan. (Put in “Chopin for Everyone” in the “Archives” and I’ve got a delicious playlist embedded.) I’m also a big fan of Saint Saens. And, like you, I’m not at all a fan of senseless noise. I’ve got a recording of the wonderful violinist, Hilary Hahn, performing the Schoenberg Violin Concerto, and I so want to love it, and I just can’t. I just can’t embrace Schoenberg. I’m just not a twelve-tone or ‘atonal’ kind of listener. (Although I will try, for Berg’s Violin Concerto, and a few others.)

      So glad to know there’s another classical music lover out there, who wants to talk about it all. That makes me so happy! Give the archived selections under “classical music” a read, and I would be thrilled if you joined in those conversations, too. And if there’s not a conversation, ooh, please start one! I will always respond.

      I just saw your emailed comment, Seljuk – so glad you found the link! I wish there was a “like” button – that would be great. But when I tried to install a “floating,” more obvious subscribe/like button, it messed up the other “subscribe” and I shrugged and thought, “keep it simple.” Thanks so much for your interest in subscribing!

    I am a former dancer as well from the Philadelphia area that also took up cello and violin as an adult. I too am a published author of six children’s books grades 4th through 8th grades. The last four books should be out by the first of the year. Your stories brought back a lot of memories for me. Thank you.

      So great to “meet” you, Kathy, and I just love all the things we have in common! Thanks for taking a moment to post your comment. And best wishes, fellow author, on your book writing/publishing endeavors! : )
