    Default Hi from Poland!

    Hi there Beautiful People!
    I've already made some posts here on the forum, but I think I've never made a proper hello <shame>.

    I'm polish, in the beginning of my 30s, I listen to classical music and opera since childhood. Mozart, Beethoven and the whole gang have been always in my family home, so I basically can't imagine my life without classic. I've been playing piano in my primary school, but apparently I was better listener than performer but I still remember how to read the notes etc. My younger sister is an opera singer.

    Apart of classical music, I enjoy reading books (like, a LOT, I have thousands of them), watching TV shows, learning hungarian (the most beautiful language in the world, I'm kinda obsessed with hungarian literature, language and Budapest where I'd like to live in the future) and a bit of italian (because of the opera).

    Sorry my English is not perfect. I try my best!

    So... wine for everybody, cheers!

    I spent 9 days in Krakow last year. One of the most wonderful vacations of my life!

    Welcome, brahmsgirl. Hope you stick around.

    I agree that the Hungarian language is beautiful, though I don't speak a lick of it. Have you heard Béla Bartók's opera A kékszakállú herceg vára, or Bluebeard's Castle? It is an absolutely beautiful work start to finish, and the use of the Hungarian language throughout only contributes to that beauty. In my opinion it is Bartók's greatest work and perhaps the greatest work by any Hungarian composer. I bet you would enjoy it.
