the good, inexpensive CD thread

Postby elvenpianist » 05 Jul 2006, 14:50

Don't know about the rest of you, but I don't have enough pocketchange to buy $25 CDs very often- despite the fact I pretty much only buy books, music, and textile related stuff. lol.

So if you find a good CD under $14, post it here!

I'll start by pointing out some good series by DC/decca/philips. If you can get past the sometimes ludicrous packaging, there's some really good stuff on some of these CDs- definitely worth checking out, if you're still building your standard repertoire collection. Especially at $8 a CD- with names like Argerich, Eschenbach, Richter, it ain't a bad deal.



(I have the Albinoni disc- very nice. :))

The panorama series is $15, but there's 2 CDs! I have the prokofiev set, not bad at all.


And don't forget the Glenn Gould anniversary editions, satisfying all your eccentric bachian needs for only $11.98 per CD! ;)You should be able to find these at your bookstore, and amazon has them as well.

Check out Brillant Classics. They are cheap! Just can't find any link to a site that sells them. Perhaps it's mainly Holland that sells these CDs. Anyway, you can get these sets (Dutch site links btw):
