Maybe someone can help me - do you think this is overpriced?

Not at all.  Mozart's music is priceless.  But I'll cut you a deal.  An American amazon seller has the same disc for $29.99.  If you'll send me just half of what that UK seller's asking, I'll get the disc from the US site and send it to you.  I'll not even charge you for shipping.   ;D

Hmm, let me consult my bank manager.... ;D ;D

though, notice that it isn't a UK seller, it would be mailed from the US. I was thinking about pressing One Click, obviously, but then I thought on - shipping is so expensive  ;D

(for me, the best thing about this page is the reassuring little 'Low Price' label)

The Pound is not worth what it once was and it does say on the site that it is a low price! You will only spend the money on something else....go for it; then send it to Iago with your love.

Get the Grimiaux recording of the String Quintets. It includes a fantastic, inspiring rendition of the Divertimento in Eb as well (k562 I believe).

Yes, I'd pay 1/10000 of that price.  ;)

PayPal server will crash!

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

    £47,289.00 LOW PRICE  :o

I wish I could say the same when visiting London.  :-\

Thanks, I have that one, and I'm not looking for another. I don't know anything about this version, btw, and I wasn't thinking of buying it even at a reaosnable price. I was just browsing - I was searching under 'Primrose' at the time, but I couldn't resist taking a look when I saw the price!

Yeah, the Grimiaux is terrific, and the only other recording I have is the G minor and D major (the latter is my favorite) by the Prazac Q and Hatto Beyerle. The latter (Prazac recording) is a live recording which is often very good. Worth checking out, definitely (and CHEAP!).

The Griller is a superb group. Their Haydn 71+74 is a classic.

I would distrust anything with the name "Hatto" in it.

The same link now gives two prices....just a factor of 1000 separating them.

The problem with the word 'Hattogate', for me, is that everytime I read it my first thought is that slanderous imputations are being made about the delightful Yorkshire spa town which was almost a second home to my father, as a boy! ;D

Indeedie - once the "Hattogate" thing had just broken, before Google could update its searchs for the phrase, the only Google references to the phrase were typos of Harrogate :D

Hattogate's yesterday's news, fit only to wrap up your fish and chips. ;)

I am so tempted to contact the seller to see if it's being offered in a solid platinum case!  I wonder if there could possibly any other way to enhance the value of any cd to that level?

Well, I suppose if it was Mozart's own copy that would beef up the value for more than one reason.  ;D

Low Price or not - it is in very good condition! You're wasting your time here, Luke. Go and order it right away!

Even if you don't like it, you can always resell, can't you? ;)
