    Wow. I can get that recording on my Amazon prime account. I will listen out of curiosity.

    I tried this one. Couldn't get through the whole thing. You hear every gasp and breath of the violinist. Not the artists fault for sure. Very distracting. The recording is poorly engineered.

    I skipped last month Free Naxos Download, rightfully if I read this, but for those who like the Naxos label and want to try something new, JPC.de has many Naxos titles for €0.99, €1.99, €2.99 and just above that. These include CDs, DVD-audio and downloads (I am not into purchasing downloads, but they offer mp3/flac). Apart from many usual suspects (Bach etc), I came across many names I had never heard of, so decided to buy some. Here is the link, to sort on price (lowest first) select next to Sortieren nach "Preis aufstiegend": https://www.jpc.de/s/1229234_53200?searchtype=cid

    These are the ones I ordered for a total of €35 + P&P (€2.99):
    • Albert Roussel - Symphonie Nr.4
    • Alexander Glasunow - Die Jahreszeiten op.67
    • Alexander Glasunow - Der König der Juden
    • Alexander Scriabin - Symphonie Nr.3 für 2 Klaviere
    • Andres Isasi - Streichquartette Nr.0 & 2
    • Antonio Soler - Klaviersonaten
    • Daniel Sternefeld - Mater Dolorosa (2CD)
    • Deodat de Severac - Klavierwerke Vol.2
    • Ferde Grofe - Grand Canyon Suite (DVD-Audio)
    • Karol Szymanowski - Harnasie op.55 (Ballett-Pantomime)
    • Leos Janacek - Klavierwerke Vol.1
    • Ludwig Thuille - Violinsonaten Nr.1 & 2
    • Nikolaj Roslavets - Cellosonaten r.1 & 2
    • Philippe Manoury - 60th Parallel (Oper) (2CD)

    Maybe they are crap, but at that price it's worth the risk. Also bought the Naxos Quartets box by Peter Maxwell Davies (5 CDs for €14.99) from JPC recently which I really appreciated.

    I doubt they'll all be crap. I have a lot of Naxos discs and the majority are good or better and many are top tier. Enjoy your purchases.

    Fully agree, I have a huge amount of Naxos CDs, but like with any other label, not all performances or recordings are great. Don't know why it is that these titles are so inexpensive, but looking foward to hearing them. Anyone here owns any of these titles?

    They are definitely not crap - Roslavetz, Szymanowski, Severac, Roussel and Thuille are fine, for example.

    I have other Grofe disks from naxos, same orchestra. They are good.
