    Talking Greetings

    Hey!

    My name is Alice, I'm a musicology student in her twenties living in the french part of Switzerland. I'm a harpsichordist and organist so my life has been mostly about renaissance and baroque music for years (e. g. Bach, Couperin, Duphly, Palestrina, Buxtehude, Scarlatti). When I was 17, I discovered romantic and modern music again, which I didn't think I liked as much as baroque... And here I am now, listening to Ravel on a daily basis and enjoying a few Ligeti or Lutosławski concerts here and there. (Well, I'm still not a huge Wagner and Beethoven fan, but who knows, maybe some pieces will change my mind someday haha.)

    Apart from that I am also fascinated by jazz and electronic music. There's a lot to talk about so we'll stick to classical music for now.

    I'll leave you with a few pieces that are really important to me ; nice to meet you!

    Alice, Welcome to TC. Your introduction was very nicely done, and you introduced me to a composer I'd not heard of before, Jacques Duphly. So thank you for that.

    It was also very good of you to include some YouTube clips, they are the best way to describe music that is important to you.
