    Classical Guitar and Viola (and some basic Piano). Music minor in college, with a focus on music theory and analysis.

    I don't gig professionally, but my mother and step-dad do.

    Well, I used to gig years ago: back in school. But it wasn't classical and I completely wrecked my high-frequency hearing. Fender strat through a Marshall 100 W tube head (JCM 800 recently superseded by a JVM410).

    15, OK maybe 20, years as a semi professional orchestral player....
    Also big band and lotta lotta churches and anything else I could find....
    Lots of time invested, do not regret one moment, but our society does not support
    it anymore...I.E.
    I hadda continue what I was doing to make a living.
    Rap is money ...classical is starvation...
    Go figure right, but that is the wAY IT IS.
    Regards to all, a good thread this one.

    Once you have heard Sviatoslov Richter (1915-1997) play Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Concerto you don't want to hear any other pianist attempting it.

    My two favourite movements - 3rd & 4th - from Beethoven's 5th Symphony. I have a black vinyl recording of every Beethoven's symphony by the Berliner Philharmonic conducted by Karajan. Awesome!

    Here's a real treat. Saw this first when I was 17 years old and I still enjoy it. Full movie of "Allegro Non Troppo"

    If you haven't seen it before after a few minutes you'll wonder what's going on but keep watching.... and enjoy the cartoons set to pieces of classical music. They are all good and as the title suggests .....fun but not too much! Enjoy. I couldn't find the version with subtitles but never mind, the cartoons and music are brilliant.
