Quote from: Brian on March 02, 2023, 05:57:34 AMThe average big box seems to be moving more towards niche/smaller audiences. A few years ago, we were getting Reiner, Bernstein, Karajan boxes; now we're getting Robert Craft, Claudio Abbado, Trevor Pinnock boxes.
Quote from: Todd on March 02, 2023, 06:26:58 AMThey do, so I am hoping this year for a Big Rach box (with artists that interest me) and a Big Byrd box (yes, I saw the phrase as I wrote it). 2027 should hopefully see big boxes denied us in 2020.
Quote from: DaveF on March 03, 2023, 06:11:11 AMRegarding Byrd, I can't see a big collection being a possibility,

Quote from: Brian on March 05, 2023, 05:34:19 AMI have loads of Zino Francescatti thanks to the Szell, Bernstein, and Casadesus boxes, but there's probably enough more to justify buying his own box?
Quote from: Brian on March 05, 2023, 05:34:19 AMDude...you need to buy a lottery ticket becauseJust published on Amazon.de with a release date of June 2. 95 CDs.
Quote from: Mookalafalas on March 05, 2023, 06:29:20 PMAs it is, I bought a second hand Ozawa, complete Phillips box over the weekend. For $40, it was an easy choice. I have a ton of his Boston era stuff I haven't played, so am planning an Ozawa binge in the not too distant future (when I finish the Munch box, perhaps).
Quote from: Brian on March 05, 2023, 06:48:01 PMWow! How? I just checked Amazon US and the Ozawa complete Philips box is $300 there. Having heard Ozawa's work in the Boston Symphony DG box, I would be interested in a copy of the Philips one. His Boston work is really, really good and the orchestra is spectacular. They clearly had a very close and beneficial relationship that brought the best in each other. The Ozawa/Warner box is still available relatively cheaply and I know it has an incredible, bass-prominent Lutoslawski Concerto for Orchestra in Chicago.
Quote from: Mookalafalas on March 06, 2023, 02:24:50 PMI'm glad to hear you are a fan. More insentive to dig in. $300 for the 25 disk Philips box??!! That's nuts. Just someone hoping to get lucky, probably, rather than a real indication of the going price. The copy I got was from a Japanese seller (I live in Japan, so cheap shipping), but I found one in the states for a similar price.
