It is such a pleasure to get to know this forum. I am very happy to join you.
I am a Japanese doing my PhD in the US.
I have always loved classical music. I played the piano for 13 years as I was growing up. I am also fascinated with the sounds of violin. I wish I could play the violin…!
I have so many favorite composers so it’s really difficult to pick. But Debussy has always been my love. I also love the Impressionist painters such as Monet and Renoir.
Other favorite composers include Ravel, Bartok, Schostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven, Franck, Elgar, Kreisler, Chopin, Dvorak, Bach, and many more.
My favorite musicians include Midori, Emanuel Ax, Pascal Roge, Charlotte Church, and the Boys Air Choir <http://www.boysoloist.com/artist.asp?VID=71>.
This seems like a very nice community. I look forward to talking with you.
