I've mentioned this elsewhere, but the full Mahler Gielen set is EUR 9.95 for those in Germany (on jpc). It's EUR 89.99 on CD.

We already have a thread for this called the downloads thread (which is pinned too).  I think this thread should be merged with it.

I withheld a reply hoping the can would simply wobble slightly and come back to rest. ;D ;) Anyway, David is referring to another thread, the one used for discussions of download services and quality of files available.

I notice that Presto is offering (by mistake?) some ASV recordings for less than £2 per disc, or per disc's worth, I should say (MP3 and FLAC). (Some discs, on the other hand, are not downloadable in my country.)

Complete Brilliant Classics Tallis for £10.79 from Qobuz:

http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/album/integrale-des-oeuvres-thomas-tallis/5028421942681

No digital booklet, but the individual ones are all freely and legally downloadable from Signum's site: http://www.signumrecords.com/products/pages/search.php?action=search&part=tallis

I was looking for the 2 or 3 individual volumes that I'm missing, but they would have cost a lot more.

There are some incredible deals on various Lyrita collections on eMusic these days:

British Piano Concertos    4 discs, 305 minutes

British String Concertos    4 discs, 303 minutes

British Symphonies     4 discs, 316 minutes

and biggest of all:

Lyrita Celebrating 50 Years (both sets!!)     8 discs, 589 mintues     

Each of the above is available for $6.49 each. And if you buy "double-your-download" booster packs, you pay half that. So you can download more than 25 hours of Lyrita's greatest hits for just $13 total!!


(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/91kEcn5eCcL._SY355_.jpg)


And by the way, those downloads are at 320 kbps.

Also, as far as I know, there's no overlap between the collections.

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).

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

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...

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...
