My Home Maestros On Music Records Miscellous Links Korean text

    Private chat ^^

   My music home is more than 17 years old now. This section was begun only on Wilhelm Backhaus, but now on 33 artists and ensemble(English; 13 artists), and miscellous columns. I'll update this home perhaps the end of my life(^^). Because my hobby is not only classical music but also science (both hobby and my profession), I cannot use all of the spare times for this home. Dear classical music fans, encourage me in this page though it is somewhat (or very -.-) slowly updated.

   * Blog(Web Log) ; It's Korean, but can gives considerably much space and I will use it for many mages. Enjoy them!

   On 13th Mar. 2016, my home became a part of I should apprecieate very much to the owner of the famous site here.

    My Interest in Music - as a part of life

   Music has been inexhaustible source of my joy since 1979. My concern on music was piano at first, flute next, and recorded music - and developed to the music itself. I didn't choose music as my major, but think it is wiser in order to enjoy music. During over 20 years, music has been one of my best friends.
   This page is dedicated
"An die Musik" ^^.
