About
Greetings to all Classical aficionados!

Since 2002, we've discussed recordings, performers, conductors, compositions, composers, and anything else that's related to the wonderful world of classical dorkiness. This is LJ's first and finest classical music community -- and whatever "classical music" means these days, who knows?

A Few (Simple) Requests:

No blatant idiocy, please. We're not here to discuss what you wore to your flute recital, how much you love Charlotte Church, or when Wolfgang Sebastian Beethoven wrote the 10th Symphony.

No intellectual snobbery either, mind you.

Feel free to be passionate, witty, opinionated, sarcastic, and interesting above all else.

Don't be rude to your fellow members. If you don't know what "rude" means, you should probably leave now.

PLEASE DO NOT POST ADVERTIZEMENTS ABOUT OTHER CLASSICAL MUSIC COMMUNITIES OR THEY WILL BE DELETED!!!! IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO POST ABOUT CLASSICAL MUSIC, DO IT HERE!!!!!!! Why are there other communities??? People are insane.
