These are great bargains, especially the solo keyboard box (missing the art of fugue, though). Note that they also have the 172 discs complete Bach by Hänssler for EUR 130.
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.

Ooh that looks good, it seems they throw in an MP3 download along with a FLAC or ALAC. I can a whole load of Penderecki there - I'd better start sampling to see what I want :D.

The Naxos/Penderecki cycle is very fine!

If this is part of the sale, grab it!


It happens to be both great chamber music and outrageously priced on Amazon (I presume it's OOP).

I hope you are aware that your local library service provides access to Naxos Music Library - an astonishing online resource with many labels.  Not the highest bit rate for library members, but decent enough (I'm suspicious I get a better sound then they state).  Excellent for "try before you" buy.....  (I've found that Penderecki Chamber music recording, for example, complete with PDF booklet).

Bit of an art to track down recordings sometimes - don't settle for no trace on an advanced search - many a recording can be found on the label/composer pages once you know the label.   See  #17 (and #16,others etc) here:

Worth remembering too that the magnificent resource IMSLP - if you pay a subscription (barely £20 pa) this includes access to the Naxos Music library of recordings which relate to scores available through IMSLP.  So sadly nothing that is still in copyright but lots of fine music to explore still...

Thanks, Verulamian. That's a truly amazing resource - some 150,000 discs in their library (from brand new to decidely rare).

As a Barbican Library member in the UK, I've ready free access. but I hope public libraries elsewhere and in other countries may have signed up to it.

Sounds promising. The 60 - 90 second samples are useful, I should be able to prune the purchases down a bit.
