Check This Out! - The Deal of The Century

When it comes to purchasing classical music, I head to Naxos first. They offer high quality recordings at a low price. So, imagine my thrill last week when I discovered that they were offering 24 hours of classical music for $9.99 on iTunes!

Naxos has taken 22 of their full-length albums and compiled them into one AMAZING collection. Which includes:
BACH, J.S.: Brandenburg Concertos, Vol. 1
BEETHOVEN: Piano Sonatas Nos. 8, 14 and 23
BRAHMS: Symphony No. 2 / Serenade No. 2
CHOPIN: Nocturnes (Selection)
DEBUSSY: Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune / Nocturnes
DOWLAND, J.: Dowland's Tears - Lute Music, Vol. 2
DVORAK: Symphony No. 9 / Symphonic Variations
FAURE: Requiem / Messe Basse
GRIEG: Orchestral Music
HANDEL: Messiah (1751 Version) [double album]
HAYDN: String Quartets Op. 76, Nos. 1- 3
HILDEGARD VON BINGEN: Heavenly Revelations
LISZT: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 / Totentanz
MOZART: Requiem in D Minor
PALESTRINA: Missa Papae Marcelli
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Sheherazade / The Tale of Tsar Saltan
SCHUBERT: String Quartets (Complete), Vol. 1
SCHUMANN, R.: Kinderszenen / Papillons / Carnaval
TALLIS: Spem in alium / Missa Salve Intemerata
TCHAIKOVSKY: Nutcracker / Swan Lake (Excerpts)
VIVALDI: 4 Seasons / Wind Concertos
WAGNER, R.: The Ring (Orchestral Highlights)

I purchased this collection for my own library, and I'm recommending it for my students, too!
