Musicophilia Samantha 2007

As much as 2006 saw me returning to my punk love with a vengeance, my 2007 musical passions were a discovery of metal and “indie,” and a continuance of my punk fetish. In “classical” music, I became even more fond of William Byrd and his cronies, and rejuvenated my love for Janacek, Puccini, Verdi, Bellini, Rossini, Mendelssohn, Vaughn Williams, Elgar, Amy Beach, Mahler, Louise Farrenc, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Schubert, Schumann and Brahms.
