    Default HI there, quite unexpected but I hope I'll be a useful member!

    My name is Kfir, 28 "and a half" year old man, and while I'm technically Israeli Jewish I'm converting to Traditional Catholicism, of which Classical music gave a lot of influence on me.
    So what is the "story" I have with Classics? Well, I dressed up as Mozart for Purim when I was in third grade, and loved Classical music since I remember myself, for me it's an age-old tradition that isn't going to get boring any time soon, despite some ignorant people saying otherwise; I am especially fond of Russian ballet, and visiting Bolshoi theater in Moscow is one think I have to do sometime in my life.
    The Catholic Church supported quite a few Classical musicians, such as Mozart (while he was a Mason, the condemnation by the Church was only applied to Austria after his death), Beethoven and Haydn, and Mozart's last composition, the Requiem (which was partially finished by Austrian Franz Xaver Sussmayer as Mozart dies in the process), is actually a Mass to honor a deceased person.
    When I will marry a women (if and when), the music I wish to be played is Wagner's Wedding March, but as for compositions I just can't get bored from, The Nutcracker is my choice.

    I hope to enjoy this community as well as you like my presence, nice to meet!

    Welcome to TC. Wagner's wedding march is a good one. Have you heard the Mendelssohn wedding march from A Midsummer Night Dream?
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    Hello Kfir. Was your name inspired by, the. Kfir Jet fighter?


    Kfir C-10 is an Israeli-built all-weather, multirole combat aircraft that includes cutting edge avionics, glass cockpit, integration of advanced weapon systems, self-protection systems, air refueling, and other features to meet today's mission requirements.

    - Kfir means , Lion cub in English. I like that.

    You might find it of interest to look into the background of Mahler’s 8th Symphony related his Catholicism. Wishing you an enjoyable stay on the forum.
