Anyone saw this? Not my cup of tea, but maybe for others! 70€ no less!
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.

I'm not a sufficient Josquin fan to want 34 CDs of his music, but the cover is so delicious I'm almost tempted!

Exactly the same thought I had :)

Yes. I am going to pass it by, since I already own the parts of it, which interest me (some Dufay and Binchois eg.).
As soon as a word has left the lips, not even the fastest horse can catch up with it.

9.99€ for 7 CDs at JPC. Includes La mer, Symphonie fantastique, Mahler 5, Sacre du printemps, Carmina Burana, Borodin 2, The Planets etc.

I’m no fan of Rattle and sound samples seem to reveal a clear but bassless sound. But it may be of interest to some. For those interested: https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/classic/detail/-/art/rhythm-colours/hnum/6365420

The Rattle box seems rather boring (as far as repertoire goes). But if you click on "Boxen preiswert" (cheap boxes) there is a long list with some that might be more interesting for some listeners here. E.g. 13 discs of Richter's Carnegie Hall concertos 1960 for EUR 19.99
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Also 30 discs of Verdi for 20 euros. Very tempting...:

I received it today. It’s a nice, sturdy box, not a flimsy affair. Quite the bargain !

Several of those old RCA Italia Opera recordings are genuine classics - I'd buy anything with Anna Moffo.  And the famous Trovatore with the young Mehta is an absolute classic even if there are issues with tape distortion....

I'd really agree. I haven't got that box but have steadily acquired almost all the complete operas they include. That Trovatore is my absolute favourite, while the Schippers/Ernani, Levine/Vespri and the Macbeth, Luisa Miller etc take an awful lot to beat.
