    Default Another Greeting from Canada

    Have enjoyed classical music as long as I can remember - certainly since I learned to put the pick-up ("tone arm" to those born in the fifties and later?) down on Dad's 78's without making a rude noise.

    I enjoy "off the beaten track" composers as much (sometimes more!) as the top 40 from the 16th Century to the present day.However I do take a little time out when music borders on noise, such as that built on logic that is undetectable without perfect pitch and perfect short term recall. That said I do enjoy Webern! Current favourites are Brits - Elgar, Walton, Arnold, Holst and many others, or Americans - Copland, Ives, Barber, Hovanhess. One day will get to Rubbra and Havergal Brian and their ilk!

    Delighted to find this community - gotta take a speed reading course!

    Welcome to the forum al2henry! I also enjoy the British composers you mention, as well as Copland and Barber (my knowledge of the US repertoire is not that great, though). Hope you enjoy your time spent here. Cheerio.
