    There is a special on at the moment of 100 of their cds at 2.50 each. If you buy a few you get 10% off too, although they do charge for postage. I have filled my boots already.

    Thanks. I often pass by and have a look at their 'please someone buy me...' offers. Some superb stuff here for significantly less than the price of a pint. The Williamson Piano Concertos for a fiver is a steal.

    Just watch the P&P. 10 discs will get you the 10% off, but the postage nearly doubles (9 discs seems to be a sweet spot)!

    Boots also filled.

    Any recommendations? I like my classical music on the quirky side. Mandolin Concertos, Ukulele Stuff, Winds and Asian Classical are up my street. Anything that will blow my mind please let me know :D

    Well I went for this
    http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/dc.asp?dc=D_CDH55422

    looks pretty quirky at least in subject matter. I can't actually recommend since it hasn't arrived.

    Good marketing technique- I only chose 3 @£2.50 (was going to be 4 until I played a sample of what Steven Osborne did to Beethoven) plus a full price English Consort Handel set.

    The Guerrero is very good too. The appropriately named Battle Mass- in the forty odd years the man depicted on the cover was on the throne, he was not at war for only six months of them.

    When I saw this I thought it was a school boy double entendre-

    In fact, two of them

    Certain people who already have far too many CDs, Spotify Premium and *no willpower* may never forgive you for this post.

    My lack of will power brought me 15 CDs.... Have just listened to Taneyev's Piano Quintet - what a magnificent piece of music, and I would probably never have heard it without this special offer.

    Hyperion autumn cataloglogue looks good. Brabbins, BBCSO RVW’s Sea Symphony ( I need another like a hole in the head..) and this set caught my eye-
    https://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/dc.asp?dc=D_LSO0826-D
    I have the 3rd Symphony and it’s a delight, so the complete set with other Mendelssohn gems at this price, is a steal. JEG is in his golden period!
