    Default Hi from France

    Hello, I am a newcomer from France, I came across this forum whilst doing some research on recordings
    and I Have found the sections and comments very interesting.
    I find it hard to speak about classical music with people as I live in a remote part of Brittany but I choosed it, as I am also a nature lover.
    I listen a lot to the European composers of the Renaissance (mostly sacred music), the French composers of the 17th century, Bach, Handel and Mozart, the Romantic and post-romantic era and some composers of the XXth c. I also like the opera.


    Looking forward to spending time with you.

    Welcome to Talk Classical, Capitoul. Enjoy the site, it's mostly harmless.

    Ahh... Bretagne. Brings back memories from our time in Normandy (Rouen, 2002-2004).

    You are indeed from a delightful part of the world. Welcome to TC.

    Very nice with a member from France, there aren't that many, such rich musical traditions. I once went to parts of Southern Brittany (Pont-Aven, Quimper, Rochefort-e-T, Vannes/Ile aux Moines) and would surely like to go back to see more of that lovely region ...

    Welcome Capitoul

    When I lived in Paris I had a client with a site at Lannion. I used to travel once a year, usually in Spring, to work with them for a couple of days. My wife would come with me, we'd stay in Perros-Guirec, and extend our visit by a few days. Loved the culture there, and the seafood.

    Enjoy Talk Classical.

    Bonjour, Capitoul, and welcome among us. I enjoy hearing older French orchestras play on their recordings. Maurice André never disappoints. I have spent much time with the Jean Baptiste Arban cornet/trumpet studies.
