This is 95 pounds, before VAT is subtracted. For some reason, UK Amazon shipping is only about 1/3 the cost of some of the others (France and Italy), meaning total cost (with shipping) to me in Taiwan is about $111 (for 170CDs).  Very tempting. If the overall quality is similar to other Brilliant sets, $.6 per disk is definitely a Super-Duper Cheap Bargain.
It's all good...

Dacapo records is offering a 60% discount on much of their back catalogue. Lovers of obscure Danish music, rejoice.

Awesome! No problem. I've got four in my shopping cart but may not pull the trigger after all. We'll see.

The interested here might already seized the opportunity before, but this amazing bargain - a 6CD box set for €13 - pops up at jpc once more:

A great set indeed. And I see the Herbert Schuch Oehms box is going for 10€ - also strongly recommended to piano music fans.


Also, the Michael Gielen Edition sets!!

Any pointers?  :)  Mahler or Bruckner?

Q
The Mahler, Stravinsky/Bartók, and Schönberg, Berg & Webern are all very good indeed, the others I don't know at all/only slightly.

For Bruckner the Skrowaczewski is cheaper and overall probably better than Gielen. (I don't have either complete but sufficiently many as singles). The Schuch collection is tempting although I again have already the 2-3 of them I was most interested in.
