    Default Greetings all!

    It's nice to be here!

    I'm a classical music fan (and amateur composer) from down in Texas. I am passionate about Bach, Miklos Rozsa and John Williams, and also love Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Albinoni and Horner.
    Still, I find something to appreciate in any piece of classical music.


    I hope to have some very good times discussing and learning on here.

    "Steve Mc"

    Welcome! I'm assuming you mean John Williams the film composer, but there's also a fine classical guitarist with the same name. Whoever it is, we greet your thoughts on them and look forward to discussing music with you.

    Welcome. Nice to see another admirer of Mendelssohn.

    Thanks! The film composer (though to me he's much more than that), but, of course, Williams the guitarist is excellent.

    Hello @Granate! I used to listen mostly on the radio, until the local classical station folded. Now, I mostly listen on YouTube and Spotify.

    Hi Steve and welcome to TC. Think you will love this site and everyone is so friendly.

    You have mentioned a few of your favourite composers, what about Brahms, Schumann and Tchaikovsky?

    Well, looking forward to reading your posts?

    If you're not already listening to it, The Soundtrack Show podcast (on the How Stuff Works network) has done analysis and commentary on Jaws, Star Wars (1977), and is starting Jurassic Park this Wednesday. There are great insights, even for those of us who have listened to the scores and read the liner notes countless times. David W. Collins is the host, and he did the also-great Star Wars Oxygen series of podcasts previously that delved into the Star Wars scores.

    Welcome! You mention Miklos Rozsa. I hope you get a chance to read his autobiography. It’s fantastic.
