Welcome, Jacred!

My own introduction came on 5's: the 5th symphony and 5th Piano Concerto and from there branched out. Seems I'm particularly partial to the piano music.

Happy Birthday Ludwig!

Anyone doing anything special for our birthday boy? Tonight (as I will have more time) will watch a Bernstein performance of the "Eroica" from a Bernstein DVD collection.

That was a good listen. However it took a bit to get into it as I had just been listening to some excerpts from Bartok's Bluiebeard's Castle. That was a contrast!
