    I'm noticing that Amazon seems to be listing fewer second-hand CDs from third-party sellers (and those it does list are going up in price). Can anyone recommend a good alternative site for buying used classical CDs (UK-based, or at least shipping to the UK)? Thanks!

    "In a major shift for online commerce, Amazon is quietly changing how it entices people to buy. The retailer built a reputation and hit $100 billion in annual revenue by offering deals. The first thing a potential customer saw was a bargain: how much an item was reduced from its list price...
  3. Opera
    I recently had my Amazon Prime package updated to include the Amazon Music App at no extra cost. And I have to say Amazon Music when it comes to classical music and opera is pretty good, and is getting better by the day. Some of my favourite albums on this are the Naxos Opera Explained series...

    Cendrillon (Massenet): too dark, in spite of von Stade in the lead role, the whole opera just felt creepy. Much prefer La Cenerentola. Beethoven symphonies by Hanover Band. Well not rid of yet but will be up on Amazon soon. Just don't care for the thin, weak-sounding performance...

    ...seem to have disappeared, or at least I can't find them. Great shame as I found them very entertaining and instructive, e.g. the Beethoven symphony cycle list, produced I think by TC members, ditto one on LvB's string quartets? There was a great Schubert cycles one too (not as far as I know...

    Recently bought HJ Lim's set of Beethoven piano sonatas from iTunes. There are in total 98 music files, plus the booklet (which is why I bought from the iTunes store rather than Amazon). 40 of the files are m4a, which can play fine everywhere. 58 are m4p, which can't. They are DRM copy...
  7. Off Topic Pub
    I recently finished the first (and only) season and I'm hooked! However, I think it's only available on Amazon Prime and so I was wondering if anyone else here watches or has watched it. And if you've never watched it, and aren't too put off by MANY sexual references/scenes and excessive use of...
  8. Opera
    Hello, I was wondering if any of you could point me in the direction of, or provide me with a link to, this libretto. I can't locate one on-line except through amazon where one has to pay of course, and this I would rather avoid if possible.

    This is not so much an ad (I don't make any money to speak of), but an informative blurb because I think many people here would enjoy it. My musicological novel, available as an e-book, is soon going out of print -- and it's a good (but hardly prizewinning) and entertaining read for people who...

    When I was away from home between Wednesday and Sunday, Amazon were trying to deliver an order of mine. At the third and final attempt on Saturday, the items were marked as 'delivered' into my hands- which is clearly impossible, since I was not home for another 24 hours. I have searched outside...

    Hello, i looking for somebody who lived in the US and can help me to buy mp3. I lived outside the states (Hungary), and from here i cant download any mp3. I have tried several tricks (change IP, US based shipping adress, etc.) but nothing works. But then there is a lot of labels who sell mp3...

    Does anyone know whether the Decca set of Symphonies 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 41 (BPO conducted by Bohm, Amazon ID B000001GQB) is the same performance of those (particularly the 40th) as the full Decca box set (Amazon ID B001VVIMLG)? I really like the performance of the 40th Symphony in the smaller...
