    Default Hello from New Jersey!

    Hello! I'm passionate about classical music. Wish I could say I play something, hope to some day. I'm especially drawn to the violin and I'm a huge fan of Hilary Hahn and Janine Jansen. I pretty much can't go a day without Bach or Vivaldi, my top two, though lately I've been smitten by Ravel and Debussy. Otherwise, I listen often to Beethoven, Schubert, Rimsky-Korsakov, Prokofiev and Chopin. Also love Shostakovich and Mendelssohn. I'm always discovering something new and hope to expand my knowledge here. I found this forum because I discovered Schubert's stunning Quintet recently and did a Google search for recordings. The thread in this forum on that piece came up in my search and just blew me away--the depth of the ideas expressed on the composition--that I knew I wanted to connect with people who share my passion (unfortunately have few people in my life who do). Oh yes and I did take someone's suggestion on a CD, it was a great choice!

    Welcome RMinNJ! Big fan of Hilary Hahn here too. Think her Shostakovich 1st is awesome!

    Welcome to Talk Classical RMinNJ, and enjoy the forum. It's mostly harmless.

    Thank you! I will have to check that out, I don't think I've heard her play that!

    Thank you so much! I'm in the Western suburbs of NYC...originally from Missouri though!
