Beethoven's Bottom Bitch

?   .   faq   faves   

Musician, music major (theory and composition), music enthusiast. I post classical (-cough- and romantic and impressionist/expressionist era) pieces that I enjoy, that I think everyone should get a chance to listen to. I am by no means an expert, but requests/advice on what other music you'd like if you liked a certain piece/ questions/ comments/ concerns are more than welcome. If I can be of any assistance on the subject of music, I would love that opportunity. Feel free to contact me.
