About sirnot1

Hej. I am Swedish-Turkish-Portugese something living in New York. I love to study early music instruments and play baroque violin, cello, viola, and hopefully soon viola de gamba. People who inspire me include Jean-Baptiste Lully (I can relate to his life story), Bill Gates, Louis XIV, Marin Marias, and Victoria Reaney :). My favourite composer is Lully and I really don't like classical after baroque (Mozart sounds fake to me). My Twitter:!/Sirnot1 My Instagram: Facebook: (I will only friend you if I know you though)
