    Both Amazon UK and I think JPC offer great prices for Celibidache boxes. The complete one for 55 pounds (I think 50€ in JPC) And spare EMI boxes like the Bruckner symphonies for 16 pounds plus delivery.




    (only 12 pounds, rarity from Japan)

    And the EMI Verdi box (cheap packaging) is sold for 31 pounds with all those operas. If you don't know Verdi enough or you would like to start, give yourself a treat and pick it. In my situation and knowledge I need nothing from that box.

    Great buy on Mozart complete masses.

    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    Mozart The Great Operas 9CD for 8 dollars.
    https://www.prestomusic.com/classica...e-great-operas

    Sound is pretty good on the 1950 Die Zauberflöte



    Mozart Operas Klemperer 11 CD 15.62

    Wow, $8 for 9 CDs. I don't think I need this but it's hard to pass up at that price.

    Here's one for those who say Bohm is too slow. The Early Years box. These are good sounding 30s & 40s recordings with high energy, spirited performances. https://www.amazon.com/Karl-B%C3%B6h...GJZM3EQ&sr=1-3

    Not exactly a "ridiculous bargain," but Prestoclassical has a sale on boxed sets until the end of the year. The Fricsay Live Wire box is $14, which looks interesting to me. They have the Gardiner Bach Pilgrimage box set on sale and several of the Gielen sets.

    There are somewhere over 350 box sets on sale. Is anything there pricking up anyone's ears?

    That is a good set. www.amazon.com/dp/B0051WY4QI/

    Lots of them, but things that I already own.

    The complete Sibelius songs with Soderstrom and Krause is quite a bargain at $20 - I paid $50 for it on LP 30 years ago.

    Chailly's Beethoven, Fazil Say's Mozart, Kovacevich's Beethoven, the Hagens' Mozart, Belohlavek's Dvorak, Schnabel's Schubert, and the Hungarian Quartet's Beethoven are not to be missed at those prices.

    I bought the Gielen Edition vol 8 from Deep Discount. It was cheaper than Presto plus free shp too. Presto has good prices on all of the Klemperer boxes. And I got the Munch Warner box for 25 dollars. They have the best price on the Messiaen/Latry organ set. And I decided to get the Essential Sibelius Edition because BIS is never cheap and nobody is lower than Presto. The Karajan Symphony set (38 CDs) sells for 48.00.

    It's good to check Ebay too. Vendors there were selling new copies of the Richard Stoltzman box super cheap at 28 dollars. I always check Groove, Inc as well. They have the Scriabin Complete Works for 40 dollars.
