I've just joined the site so please be patient. Basically I would like to learn more and enjoy/enance my experiences of classical music. I've listened to the proms a couple of times and like most people, have one or two cd's. I was wondering therefore whether anyone could give advice as to how to take this step further. What I was thinking was along the lines of a'journey' full of colour and splendour, rather than something stuffy and formal. I would hope my experience of classical music should be something sensual and as such would rather read literary accounts. i've just started reading 'The Piano shop on the left bank' and is rather good. So something along this vein would be good.

Many Thanks
