I owned one CD already (Symphony#6) which would have been duplicated if I'd bought the box. But beyond that, when I added up the used prices of the individual CDs, it came out cheaper to buy the cycle that way. (For example, the CD with 4&5 was only 89 cents; the rest were under 5 Euro each).

Ah, that is cheap.

They occur on concert programmes even here

You're lucky then. In 20 years of concert-going in Bucharest I've never heard any of them, not even once.  :(

Order from amazon.co.uk:



Excellent choice!  This CD has been in my Handel collection for a number of years ...

I'm sure you have your reasons, but why not get the whole box: It would probably be cheaper, no? (Or is this just to meet the hardest working woman of Bundespost on a daily basis? ;))

I knew you would.... :)

Only the CD with 3 and 7 left to acquire.  I should buy it for completeness but...I haven't seen a single review that makes me actually want to own it. Decisions, decisions...

Continuing my current obsession, [this] arrived this morning:



Hey Sarge, you did me a big favour here. Reading about this purchase of yours, and then Nav's subsequent references to a box (news to me), I buzzed off to Amazon to discover that I could get the Davis RVW box for £15 on marketplace. So I did the deadly clicking deed, glad to get another RVW cycle that I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy.

Yep. The hardest working woman in the Bundespost handed it to me on November 28th 2008.

Nice! Looks like this set comes out around my birthday (March 6th). I'll definitely be buying this with my birthday money. 8) Kudos for mentioning it, erato.

I wonder if it collects all of Dorati's Bartok recordings too? This would be an added bonus. :)

Speaking of my favorite composer Bartok, I bought the new Gramophone magazine and it has a big article on his music plus a section in the back about his opera Bluebeard's Castle:



Bartok lovers will want this issue.

I was very surprised to find that I didn't have this recording in my possession:



Bought it for $5.
