Quote from: Roasted Swan on March 05, 2023, 08:50:32 AMThe Chandos Shop is offering the entire Naxos catalogue as downloads at 60% off so a "standard" disc is just £2.30 for a FLAC download. MUCH better than the current CD around £9.00....
Quote from: Brian on March 05, 2023, 07:34:09 PMI think I have already downloaded a lot of my Naxos wishlist but at that price, I can buy a whole lot more stuff just to be safe
Quote from: absolutelybaching on March 07, 2023, 09:47:34 AMNot sure if anyone buys from NMC at all (I bought a Harrison Birtwhistle from them once. I still haven't quite forgiven them...)But anyway, if you do:https://nmc-recordings.myshopify.com/collections/warehouse-move-flash-sale-60-offThere's 60% sale off using code FLASH60 valid until 12th March.
Quote from: DaveF on March 18, 2023, 10:08:40 AMWell, if you will buy stuff by talentless charlatans like Harrison Birtwhistle, then you're wasting your money and deserve no sympathy. I would, however, recommend the works of his near namesake Harrison Birtwistle, whom one can safely say is the most significant British composer of the last half-century (And thanks for the link and the code - I can feel some purchases coming on already.)

Quote from: DaveF on March 19, 2023, 10:31:13 AMWell, as you're acquainted with him well enough to have him spelled correctly in your catalogue, then of course I regret my facile comment. There has been a lot of Harry-bashing over the years in the popular press, frequently with the 'h' spelling, by people who have clearly hardly heard a note of his music. (Only tangentially related, but 'wistle' (or 'twistle') apparently has nothing to do with high-pitched noises - appropriately in Harry's case, since he specialised in low-pitched ones - but means a confluence of rivers in northern Middle English, seen in place-names such as Oswaldtwistle and Haltwistle. (In Welsh we do it much more economically with 'Aber'.))
Quote from: absolutelybaching on March 19, 2023, 11:38:15 AMI find him challenging, I'm not going to lie.I certainly don't love him, but I don't hate him either. My comment about NMC inflicting him on me was intended tongue-in-cheek (the clue was in the word "quite"). My apologies for all offence given.
