New daily deal at eclassical!

Recommended Posts

In any case, their recordings are usually way above average.

 

I really can't think of one I've purchased that has disappointed me, and there are very few other sources of music I can say that about.

I bought 74 albums from eClassical and have been pleased with 73 of them musically and sonically. The remaining album was a compilation of contemporary Scandinavian tuba concertos. This album is very well recorded, by the way; it's just that tuba concertos did not do it for me, that's all.

It's this one that left me scratching my head:

4453816-origpic-b78af9.jpg_0_0_100_100_143_143_0.jpg

I must say that listening to it has killed my curiosity, so I am not really eager to check the other ones out.

I purchased this based on someone's recommendation:

It's interesting, but I don't know when I'll be in the mood to listen to it again.

 

I think this is the only download I've bought that I don't like:

It was on sale for $4 or something. That guy's smile melted my heart and I couldn't say no.

His smile melted your heart? Admit it, you bought it 'cause it was $4 and you're cheap! ;)

Wow, really? I listen to "Crown Imperial" at least once / week! I'd say it's easily my favorite recording among ~5,000 albums (at least right now).

 

I love the "title track", particularly, along with "Niagara Falls", which knocks me out every time.

Don't really know this composer so much - is it worth buying…

I'm mesmerized by the beginning of this theremin concerto! Can't wait for the SACD (which will be far more expensive than this discount), this 24/96 is excellent :)

I liked yesterday's deal a lot (used to play horn in school orchestra- I was terrible) but got busy and neglected to buy it. More fool me - I still may get it at the regular price.

Happens to me all the time, alas.

Got lucky - went to the site and it was still on sale as of last night, so I bought it. :)

Track 2 "Profundo" in today's album of symphonies by Brazilian composer Guarnieri is excellent and is only $1.40. I don't care much for the rest of the album.

You only listen to the second movement of a symphony?

 

I highly recommend the whole Guarnieri series on Bis.
