    That's why I'm waiting for a super deal. I'm interested but not full-price interested.

    I bought this on a whim a few days ago. I don't normally like Der Ring without the singing, but this is fabulous! I listened to it straight through and would say it's far superior to the two other 'Ring without words' CDs I have i.e. Lorin Maazel and Lawrence Renes.

    Daphnis et Chloé

    Debussy

    I paid £50/60 a few years ago for the download. If you're ok with downloads, it's available for about £7 from SupraphonCZ. Crazy bargain!!!

    I think many forum members have been filling their boots with the bargain downloads from this site ......

    I've personally never heard anything below excellent/very good from Maazel.
    Edit: The Wagner without words CD excepted! (but that was just a bad idea, rather than bad performance)

    Solti and the VPO in Budapest 1978. Beethoven 8th, Ein Heldenleben, overture to Die Fledermaus. Really excellent stuff.

    This whole Lutosławski series on CD Accord is fantastic. I was hoping for more volumes, though --- there are eight in total, but there’s so many works that weren’t recorded, although I realize this isn’t a ‘complete’ survey of his music.

    Yeppers!

    I'm now listening to Szymanowski's Stabat Mater. I have Rattle's recording of this, but I prefer Stryja's forces, who project a sense of lambence.

    Karlheinz Stockhausen: Hymnen, third version (1969) for electronic music and orchestra
    Gürzenich-Orchester Köln, Karlheinz Stockhausen

    This gloriously weird and beautiful composition, comprised of the world's national anthems reconfigured and juxtaposed against electronically manipulated sound objects, is the perfect companion to the Toyko Olympic Games.
