    Default Hello

    I'm a refugee from GoodMusicGuide.com, which is suffered lately, including an inability to register new members. Looking forward to making this my new home for classical music discussions.

    Welcome. Enjoy yourself.
    You don't have to live like a refugee.

    Welcome to Talk Classical, your Highness Scarpia! This is a quite active forum but bear in mind that we have suffered serious DDOS attacks in February/March. We were unable to visit the forum for a week and I even lurked at yours to know what was going on...

    Tell us more about you! How do you listen to music and what are your favourite composers / eras / styles ?

    I did more than lurk, but it doesn't change the fact that TC has the most posting activity of any classical board on the internet. As for the attacks, they feel to me like ancient history.

    I listen mainly to CDs I've ripped to my computer and stream through a DAC.

    I listen to most instrumental music from Bach to the present day. Favorites are Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Schoenberg, Berg, Sibelius, Martinu, Melartin, Atterberg, Martin, Bartok, Hindemith, Roussel, Faure, Scriabin, Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky, Saygun, Boulez, Schnittke, Wagner, Strauss. That's a free-association list that probably omits some important ones.

    Yes to Saygun. I love most of his works, especially the string quartets. As it happens, his Violin Concerto won one of the games I ran a few months ago.

    The Baron has excellent taste and I'm glad he decided to join us.

    A few times I quit, but didn't have the will power to stay away. This time I used the fact that the site has been abandoned by its administrator and new registrations are impossible as an opportunity to reinforce my resolve.

    Now, so many sub-boards, I fill have to figure out how to find things here.

    The portal is on the main forums page under "Classical Music Discussion" - "Classical Music Discussion Polls".

    You will find that, compared to GMG, it's a labyrinth here. Good detective skills will come in handy.
