Yea, I agree. I'll never write my opinions in stone... I'm just stating how I feel now. I'm not brand new to Classical either, as I took courses in college and have attended several orchestras, quartets, etc... I just never really started to dig in until now. I'm pretty well experience in other musical fields, so I know how perspective can change the deeper you go and the more you listen.
Thanks again for all the recommendations and insight, Big. Very helpful.
