    Red face Hi all, wannabe composer here!

    Hi all, this is Lorenzo from Naples, in Italy!

    I've been in love with classical music since I was a child, and although my musical horizons extend beyond that (I must admit I'm a bit of a metalhead too ), there's nothing that moves me like classical music to this day. I'm pretty much stuck in the late-romantic era (there's very little I like of 20th century classical music, I'm afraid), and my favourite composer is Tchaikovsky, especially his symphonic repertoire (symphonies and symphonic poems/overtures), closely followed by the likes of Rimsky-Korsakov, Dvorak, Liszt and all that merry bunch!

    Recently I've come back to another passion of mine, which is music composition: I used to write a lot in my 20s, and then life got in the way; 20 years later, I decided to get back at it! Just for fun, obviously... I do have a day job, and I certainly don't have any music career ambition! I'm not classically trained, and I'm self-taught, but apparently I do have a good ear, and this seems to have helped so far

    This past year I've focused mostly on more "rock" tracks, although still with some orchestral flavour, and mostly to get some practice with the new tools that are available to composers today. Most of those efforts I've shared on a different forum devoted to people writing music on Linux. When the New Year arrived, I decided that my resolution would be to try and finish what I barely started all those years ago: my own Symphonic poem, and my own Symphony! Which is one of the reasons why I decided to finally register here too: considering how many fellow classical music lovers and composers lurk around, this is the best place to get some good and honest feedback as soon as I have something to share.

    Looking forward to chat with you all!

    I'm afraid that will take a while, as I need 10 posts and I'm not the most prolific of forum writers! But on the other end, there's not much to share yet anyway
