Music Bargain of a Lifetime?

Like Shostakovich? Even only just interested in Shostakovich?

I stumbled on this accidentally, but you can download the entire Shosty Symphony Cycle led by Bernard Haitink for $11.98 from the Amazon MP3 store. Eleven CDs worth of fantastic music, and this is one of the best complete cycles out there. Don’t know if this is the real price or a mistake, but you might want to hurry . . .

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.

  1. Wow, what a find! If more record companies learned how to price their music like this, they wouldn’t have to contend with piracy.
