Anyone interested in Bernstein’s own music and doesn't own any fo the Columbia recordings, needs this box set ASAP:

For $37, this is a steal. I wish now that I had waited on buying this set as I could’ve got it for this bargain price.

You should get to know Ivo Kahanek, if his work is included.

A Chopin and a Janacek/Martinu/Kabelac disc are available at bargain basement price.  They already ended up in my basket.

Or £3.99 on the UK/EU site, although they're not advertised as a discounted group so you have to go looking for them (which I will :P).  Also from Eastern Europe is https://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/album/haydn-the-complete-symphonies-austro-hungarian-haydn-orchestra/0710357172229 for £8.99 - ridiculous if true (the set claims to be in CD-quality rather than the MP3s that you used to be able to get on 10 physical discs), and cheaper than any of the smaller sets on Qobuz extracted from the complete cycle.

Perhaps that price was a typo - now corrected.... Click on your link and the Presto site shows the price as £102.50 (ouch)

Wow, yup, same deal in the US:
https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/album/haydn-the-complete-symphonies-austro-hungarian-haydn-orchestra/0710357172229

Guess it's time to join Qobuz

I mentioned the Qobuz/Supraphon deal a week or so ago - lots of good Novak/Ostricil/Janacek but you do need to dig around to find.  Also, you don't need to join Qobuz (no subscription etc) to buy downloads - I thjink that's just for their streaming service....

On JPC de there is a big Tactus sale, at 4 euros a piece, as far as I can see it. 120 titles, also box sets.
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Speaking of jpc I ordered something from them close to three weeks ago and it seems like the package is just lost.  They indicated once it reached the states it would go through usps (and a tracking # supplied) but nothing.  Has shipping from Europe become much slower than I remembered?

I think my orders from the UK have been arriving about 20 days from the order being placed. Covid and Louis DeJoy have definitely slowed down international handling.

They usually arrive within a few days to Denmark, the exception being items not in stock; then JPC will often split up the mail in two packets, at no extra cost ...

Oh my order Presto only took a week.  I guess that was just lucky.  I'll be patient with my jpc order.

I'm in the states too. JPC usually takes over a month to get to me. I wouldn't give up hope yet.

Oh thank you, that is reassuring!  They must be on the slow boat and not air mail.

My last order from JPC arrived in about two weeks (perhaps a bit longer), which I was surprised to get so quickly from them. Usually, it takes about a month to receive an order as vers la flamme pointed out.
