    I was wondering if you ordered this. It says "Product not available at your location". I order from Presto just fine so I'm assuming that they don't want to pay the shipping costs to be sent across the pond at that price.

    That's weird. That link was good a week ago. I would just but a used copy of the Giulini CD. And get Klempy's Magic Flute. But I'm sure Mozart fans already have them.

    Talking

    I am somewhat hesitant ordering from Presto these days. Expected mailing is 70 days later, plus delivery time, which is a lot. Uncertain about a sudden Brexit after the election in December and possible custom fees, also possible waning sales/profits (?). But all this buying seems to indicate they're not losing sales currently. I've always been satisfied with them, but postage has gone up recently, like in Denmark, making other sellers also worth investigating.

    Oh, rats. I just placed an order. I hope this isn't the case.

    I can only speak for my latest order. I mailed them about their view on likely Brexit implications, this was just after the general election had been announced, but they couldn't predict anything.

    I think Amazon UK has also put any shipping unavailable, except for 3rd party sellers. I've been afraid of anything like this since March this year.

    Seems that the odds for a sudden, Hard Brexit have been going down somewhat, though.

    As an update, I reveived a message about this CD from the online CD seller (a large and well-known company who trade thru Ebay). They asked me if i had received the CD, explaining that there had been a mistake with labelling the package and it was actually meant to go elsewhere and the other customer had received my CD. Being honest, I immediately sent a message back saying that I had no idea where it had come from and offered to sent it back at my expense (as long as I could then have the postage amount taken off a future purchase). I got a very pleasant message back this morning which basically said keep the disc, my original Beethoven CD was in the post and thank you for being an valuable customer. This is the second time ive had a mix up with this company but each time ive got a free CD. Sometimes it pays to be nice.

    A new Bach Guild offering at, of course, $. 99. I have listened to about a third so far and will post thoughts later.

    The Abbado Symphony Edition (41 cds DG) appears to be fluctuating in price on Amazonia UK …...has been 32 quid at one point, not sure what to do?

    Free if as stated, this is in the public domain. Seems like a decent performance though I have only listened to a bit from the letter scene. Scroll down and the download is on the right all 20 in one download or can do each track individually.

    Damn, this is a great example of something I really do not need, but really want now on account of it being such a great deal. I'll use the fact that there is almost definitely no libretti included to talk myself down.
