Interesting downloads of violin and orchestra music by Xenakis, Berio and Mira Fornés available for 2.97$ at eclassical


From this disc:



Dox-Orkh is IMO one of the better works from Xenakis' late period (which I generally don't tend to like all that much). I've never heard the Mira Fornés--what's his style like?

I have no idea at this point, but I'll buy the downloads, so I should report in the coming weeks.

There is a completely superb (free) download of Bach's second partita for solo violin BWV 1004 from the Download section at:

http://www.alinaibragimova.com/

A wonderful young violinist. With her Bach, you really feel as though you are eavesdropping on a private meditation.

p.s. When I downloaded, there were some garbage characters in front of the URL of the fifth track (the Ciaccona). If they are still there, you will need to edit the URL so that it starts simply: http:// ....

Anyone interested in hearing more from Alina should buy the current edition of BBC Music magazine, which has her in Bach's two Violin Concerti, as well as the Chaconne from Partita No. 2. ;)

Download music? What a shame, I would never do that!

I've downloaded enough to fill up seven/eight 5GB Cds. And something from iTunes too (Malipiero symphonies, something else).
And I won't talk about my 40-50 DVD downloaded as well. And books, a lot of books. And softwares sometimes, but not very often.

NetLimiter reads I have downloaded 30gb in the past three weeks.

In case you didn't know, amazon know has 256 kbps MP3 downloads. 

Here's an example of the selection so far:

Does it matter? There should be no problem with you buying downloads from the US site.  :)

  George,  don't you need a mailing address in the U.S. to receive hard copied invoices/receipts in order for you to be able to purchase these mp3 downloads?

Yes, cd. As in "compact disc"  :)

I burn the files on disc 'cause I never listen on the computer. I take my booty to the batcave where all my listening equipment is. And the ol' armchair, of course!
