I have always been listening to music, and in recent years, this activity has taken a more central part of my life. Rather than just enjoying music, making my own thoughts about it, then letting them “evaporate” into oblivion, I felt it might be useful to share this with other music lovers, maybe enabling them to enjoy music even more? Hence this blog.
My Blog is in English (US); if you prefer another language, and your browser does not translate my pages, you may use the Google translation utility in the sidebar—this should allow viewing my blog in any language from Afrikaans to Zulu.
Navigation: for finding posts about a specific artist (instrumentalist / singer / conductor), on a specific ensemble (chamber music formation / choir / orchestra), or featuring a specific composition, you may either use the top menus or alternatively the search feature (loupe) in the main menu.
