    dreaming of Sweden

    I don't usually like saying hello on forums but somehow this one seems nice and friendly and I 've had some fun already without even listening to much music!

    Brought up in Scotland but have lived for a while in Sweden and best part of a year in Denmark. My german girlfriend fell in love with Sweden when we went together for the first time in June so if anyone has about 3 million SKR to spare we will just buy a very nice cottage outside Gothenburg (my mum's home town) and retire there on the proceeds of the millions of sales of my Zodiac suite I haven't yet written.....

    OK, back to reality. I have fairly routine IT day job from which I can escape into music. Have relatively little formal training -it was a subject at university and I had both piano and organ lessons at school but never really managed to co-ordinate two hands never mind adding feet! But that doesn't matter so much with modern software. Once I made the rash claim to a university friend that I would write a symphony before the age of 35. Completely forgot about this until I discovered about this age that it really was possible to use computers to play music for you and produced a sort of symphony just in time. Since then, I'm afraid to say another 5 have followed. I have sung in choirs based in Scotland, England, East Germany (my all time favourite), West Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Holland and Poland. I've been living in Edinburgh for the past 8 years which is a long time to be in one place.

    I'm really a lover of the late romantic and enjoy nothing more than arguing about performances and conductors.

    Welcome dko22

    Hope your stay continues to be enjoyable here on MIMF. I've found a wealth of information and interesting forums here, too. My dreams are of Denmark though - have relatives there and hope to visit in a few years.

    Tough question this early in the morning
    Anyway, thanks for the welcome!
