Piano is my main instrument but I find cello fits into so many more groups
I listen to 92.6 everyday. I'm enamored with early baroque but also bliss out on everything from the classical period to the romantic. I'm getting more familiar with 20th century music. I'm a fan of all the Big "B's" etc in music, ie. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Berlioz...But I've also discovered some less reknown composers like Vachon, Biber who I think should share the limelight too.
Music is one of my many interests. I sketch, cycle, read science journals ...I find music is a great way to challenge myself. It's a fun way to socialise and create something ephemeral but also with substance.
We played a sonate by Domenico Gallo with aplomb. All 3 movements had Such a pleasure to meet and hear Sarah & Carol. We are lucky to have Bryan back on 1st Violin! Great sight-reading and busy chatting. If anyone feels like practising, here's the link: http://imslp.org/wiki/12_Trio_Sonatas_(Gallo,_Domenico) Go forth in the week whistling a happy tune!
