    Default Access to good recordings

    A bit annoyed again today trying to find Blomstedt conducting the SFSO in Nielsen's symphonies. Although it appears to be top recommendation for these works it is not on itunes. Neither is the Szell/Raskin recording of Mahler 4, which I was looking for recently (I got Bernstein conducting NY Phil instead ). I know they can't have everything but really - they do account for an enormous amount of music sales. They should do their research more or, do they not have access to certain labels etc?

    It means buying on Amazon or somewhere and getting the CD delivered - more expensive too.

    Are you aware of Amazon Marketplace sellers? They sell the CDs cheaper than Amazon. I seldom buy directly from Amazon, because they hardly ever have the best price.

    I never heard of it... 'it' being Marketplace Sellers.

    I did forget to mention that the Szell Mahler 4rth has been out of print in the USA for at least a few years now, but is readily available in the UK.
