Classical Guy's Guide to Classical Music

Play Carl Nielsen's 1st symphony

I'm operating out of an iCloud directory.

Still doing my best to get my classical music site up and running. My hope is to have a site worth reading. I'm currently posting pages for FREE on Surge. ( That is one of the main reasons I did not upload this page as much as I wanted to... I have managed to make a handful of transfers, and I hope to post them in the following weeks. So keep your eye on this page!

In the mean time, I post an other item from the: It's the first symphony in g minor, played by the man who was Nielsen's student, orchestral member (cello), and friend; Thomas Jensen (1898 - 1963). It's also a tribute to the disappearance of the Decca label, who as of may 1st this year lost it's idependence, and is now a hollow entity within the UJC corporation.
