A good friend has spent the last two years steering me through an education in classical music. He is quite the mentor having been a concert pianist as well as a piano teacher to college students here in the midwest. Classical is one genre of music I have always wanted to fall in love with but never quite figured out how. He shared with me pages from the book, "For The Love of Music" by Michael Steinberg, that is a must read for someone in my position looking to discover new music. I am excited to read more from the book and put into practice what Mr. Steinberg has written. First up for me will be performances of Tchaikovsky's Symphonies 2 & 5 next month.
Any guys or gals out there have stories to share on a musical journey of your own?
