I put the brakes on buying new classical recordings. I'm going to listen to what I've got, which is plenty. The last CD I ordered is the EMI reissue of Hartmann's symphonies 7 & 8/piano works. That's it for awhile.
I had the same plan as the previous two posters (no more buying until I've listened at least twice to all my new music), but the boxed set on post #3841 looks too good a deal to pass up. Alas.
Most recent purchase was also a too-good-to-pass-up deal: 250 Minutes of Bach: The Harpsichord and Brandenburg Concertos by the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra, for less than a large coffee drink (yes, MP3s). I have twelve or so different performances of the Brandenburgs, so you can see how I desperately needed another one...
I've also bought less cd's this year, what I've decided to do is only (or mainly) buy Australian classical music.
So, this time it's a double disc set of Tristram Cary's (1925-2008) electroacoustic music. He was originally a writer of television and film music in the UK, but started work with the then new electronic technologies after 1945. He came to live in Australia and became lecturer at various universities in electronic music. This will be interesting. First cd is analogue works (1955-1978) & second cd is music for computer (1979-1996)...
Same here. Especially since there are so many people (well...a lot comparatively) stocking up on Ligeti. And I have only one cd of Ligeti.
As it happens, my Ligeti Project set arrived yesterday; I'm in the process of checking the set for defects (i.e. playing all of the discs). Once that's done, I have a single copy of disc 2 which I am planning to offer to anyone who wants to pay shipping charges (no charge for the CD). Let me know if you're interested and I'll get back to you once I know the set won't have to be returned.
