A few goodies.  The Leonhardt set should be most enjoyable.  The FFG Liszt is to tide me over until his next LvB set comes out.  Stewart Goodyear's LvB gets a shot, too.

And guess what?  This seller really was that quick.  Ordered Thursday morning,  sent Thursday PM (and the postmark verifies it),  arrived in my mailbox today--meaning,  within 48 hours of my order.  Probably the quickest I've ever received an Amazon MP order.

And for less than $16 US, too.  Vendor goes under the name "Orpheus", if anyone wants to mark it down for future reference. 

Conor--
Although I don't have any of the other recordings on that Ligeti 2-for,   I do have the String Quartets as an individual CD, and think it's a very good performance.

How do you manage to get Sunday delivery?

I didn't.  Don't know what your time settings for the forum are, but I posted it yesterday--Saturday the 14th, at 8:10:49 PM to be precise (according to the forum).  Your query, by comparison, was posted at 3:12:04 PM today (Sunday the 15th) according to the forum--just under two hours before I post this.  (I set my forum settings to show my local time, US Eastern (Daylight) Time.)

ETA: except I just noticed the forum is showing US Eastern Standard Time, not Daylight time. Bah! So my respone to your query was posted an hour after you made it, more or less.

Just dropped $200 on my first CD orders since October 2011. The Dvorak/Supraphon was from Amazon UK, and everything else is from ongoing sales at MDT.



Lavinia Meijer, harp; the Prazak Quartet play Schubert's Quintet D956



Ivan Fischer: Mahler 4, Dvorak 7; Paavo Jarvi: Martinu 2, Dvorak 9



Pacifica Quartet plays Shosty quartets 1-8 plus Miaskovsky and Prokofiev; Amsterdam Sinfonietta plays Dvorak, Haas, and Schulhoff



Sudbin's Scarlatti; Rysanov's Bach; Biondi's Vivaldi



Amsterdam Sinfonietta plays bits from Mahler's 5th and 10th, plus Mahler's string orchestra transcription of Beethoven's string quartet op 95; Neumann conducts Dvorak's nine symphonies, plus the Symphonic Variations, three overtures, and four symphonic poems


Plus, a Naxos CD so old and so out-of-print that even Naxos has no information on it. I couldn't find any proof that this MDT listing even exists outside of MDT itself and an identical listing on Presto; it's not in the Naxos catalogue, or in NML, or Naxos.com. Interesting. But the MDT listing is:

SAINT-SAENS Piano Concerto No. 2 ROUSSEL Piano Concerto Op. 36 POULENC Concerto for 2 Pianos in D Minor. Peter Toperczer, Marian Lapsansky, Slovak Philharmonic / Zdenek Kosler. Naxos

Good choice, Q. Great collection of Dowland's best music and some of Byrd's consort and songs. I think you'll enjoy it immensely.

A friend of mine recently sent me a CDR copy of this:





It took three or four listens to really capture me, but ultimately it did, big time!  (If you have interest, go find this on ArkivMusic.com and read the excellent review they've reprinted.)

So now I've ordered this:





which, inasmuch as it's hard to read, contains Mr. Post's first symphony, and also a violin concerto by one Jerome Goodman, a New York composer and psychiatrist.  (David Post is a psychologist.)

Music that heals?  Fits well with the George Barati symphonic "Chant of Darkness" which was his way of healing from his daughter's death.  (Also can be had, with other fine Barati stuff, on Naxos.)

Just noticed my own post:

"Hard to read?"  Make that "impossible."  Find it on Arkiv and it'll be more useful to you.

I forgot this one:



http://www.amazon.it/Messes-Wolgang-Amadeus-Mozart/dp/B005BC18JO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1334591480&sr=8-1

EUR 12, BTW.

I have roughly over half of that set in a previous incarnation, and believe me, it is terrific. Yes, in the Mass in C minor or the Requiem the competition is fierce and the recordings here, though being very good indeed might be trumped. But concerning the rest and as a complete set this should be the best HIP choice. And at the price it is a steal! :o :D

Yes, I recalled your favorable opinion to order this set. Besides, generally speaking, I have a high opinion on Neumann; even I have another of his recordings in my wishlist: that attractive Johannes-Passion on MDG (1725 version).

Ordered last night at jpc:



Q

And now you can order the rest of EG's Boccherini recordings  :)

But the Fretwork is pretty darn good, too.

Meanwhile, I stopped at my local used CD storefront and naturally didn't walk out empty handed
The Mozart PI was $5.99*, all the rest were $2.99



The Komen I've been considering ordering off Amazon MP for a year now at least;  the Mozart for two pianos can be found at a local B&N brand new at full retail price;  I have no recordings of the Stravinsky,  and the Villa Lobos can be considered as supporting the local musicians (the New World symphony is based in Miami Beach, and this CD was recorded at the Performing Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale; the cover was photographed at a local Miami tourist attraction that has since then removed to a different location but is still open for touristing).

And also a double DVD package of the first two Harry Potter movies for $4.99.

ETA
*Lubin and the Mozartean Players in a PI performance of Mozart PCs 20 and 23 on the Arabesque label--the image URL seems to have disappeared into the cybervoid.
2nd ETA
and the image is now showing.  But I'll keep the footnote in place in case the image decides to be a Cheshire Cat and disappear again.

Q

Unless it's part of a larger order,  the Amazon Italy shipping charge to the US actually makes it more expensive than it would be on Amazon US Marketplace.  But even then, it still seems fairly attractive...

ETA: that was posted before I saw the most recent post from Nav on the SDCB thread.
