  1. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi all, I am curious about your thoughts. Do you know any important composers/musicians/conductors with major insecurities or doubts? For example, I know that Carlos Kleiber was a very insecure conductor who always had a plane ticket in his pocket in case he wanted to return before the...
  2. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi all, I am looking to connect with other classical musicians (for my partner more than for me) wherever we travel and see other related service providers (teachers, instrument shops) and I was wondering if there is an app for it (to reach people around me, see events, make friends). Do you...
