Not wanting to toot our own horn too much, but we have just started a promotion on SDG, which includes downloads.

Titles are from £6.40 (MP3) or £7.80 (CD quality), once you have paid postage this is cheaper than Amazon marketplace sellers for the physical copy.

This includes the booklets as PDF files.

I have personally checked all the download meta-data and it looks fine to be easily uploaded to your portable device etc. (let me know if you spot any errors).

Qobuz have a number of "Naxos Special Projects" sets at the moment for the price of a single disc (£4.79), including the complete symphonies of Howard Hanson and J.M. Kraus, complete Albinoni oboe concertos and Bruch works for violin and orchestra.

For those of us in Western Europe, Qobuz have a big sale: http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/search?q=80-percent-off-the-big-download-sale-2017

My eye has been caught so far by a set of the Biber Rosary Sonatas for £1.92 and a recording by Dominique Vellard of a Mass setting by Isaac (Missa Virgo Prudentissima).

Just bought this Haydn keyboard sonatas by Hiroaki Takenouchi for 1.8€, yes one euro and eighty cents.  And you know what ?  It is wonderful !!



I also got this CD of french court music from the end of the 17th century (Louis XIII), but this was 6.99 €, outrageously expensive in comparison

Qobuz is continuing its sales.  It includes big labels.  This week all of Naive is at half price.  If you are missing some of their Vivaldi's or Chamayou's recordings, this looks like a good time

The Diotima Quartet's complete 2nd Viennese box for £8.00, and Minkowski's Schubert symphonies for a ridiculous £3.60 are also very tempting.  I also nearly bought a Nielsen clarinet concerto I hadn't heard, to add to my large collection, by the exotically-named Dionysis Grammenos, but on the audio examples he sniffs a lot.  And there are Ferneyhough string quartets, and Morales Tenèbres...

Downloaded all 107 Haydn symphonies at 320 kbps from eMusic.com for just $3.50.  This is the Numbus cycle, completed by the Austro-Hungarian Haydn Orchestra conducted by Adam Fischer.




Yikes!  Now I've gotta listen to them all!   ???

I really like this album, and would especially and emphatically recommend her Chants Juifs.

Yes, it was a good one, wasn't it, so thanks for the original alert.  My total haul over the last few days was:







plus your Quatuor Diotima 2nd Viennese box - which doesn't duplicate any of my other recordings of the Lyric Suite as theirs is the sung version!  I'm currently trying hard to like Schoenberg's 3rd quartet, but it isn't easy...

If you have Spotify, they're all there.  No need to spend an extra $3.50
