Hi, I've been away from classical music for most of the last 25 yrs (not ever stopped loving it though) but want to get "back in" and experience as much as I can in the next 25.
Played a bit of cello at school, but know very little about the current classical music scene so lots of catching up to do!
I came across brightcelia on google ( searching 'classical music forum' this forum came up third in natural search which is very impressive).
Plan to get to some events in London / SE soon.

Welcome!

I think it's fair to say there's something for enthusiasts of every type of classical music here.

Thanks to you all for your kind welcomes. I have managed to catch snatches of c.music occasionally. Sonatina - I hadn't listed to R3 for years, and it was one edition of the early music programme presented by Catherine Bott that re-awoke my sleeping musical heart. I think it was around October 2009, when she introduced a performance by Stile Antico, though I can't quite remember exactly which one. That reminded me of one of my favourite pieces by Ralph Vaughn Williams, the Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, which I then hunted down again.
I guess both are pretty middle-of-the-road for classical guru's, but for me this is still music heaven.
