Catapulting into Classical

A headlong leap into music, history, and composing

99 Cent Classical Music

Music staff showing 99 cents

By popular demand, here is a list of box sets of classical music that you can download from Amazon for 99 cents.  These offerings change from time to time, so for those viewing this page sometime in the future, your results may vary.  I’ve mentioned this resource before, but today, I’m giving you a link-laden list which will also be available shortly as a separate page for easy reference.

I’ve focused here on the Bach Guild or Vox Box series because you get the most bang for the buck and because of the impeccable quality of the recordings.  But there are other fine series that you can also get for the same low price.  You’ll certainly see them on the Amazon pages.

It’s a great way to get your classical music collection started at a phenomenal price.  And you won’t end up with a 20th century wall of CDs (and, in my case, LPs).  If you’re an Amazon Prime customer already, you can stream some of these, and you won’t even have to download them.

If you don’t subscribe to a streaming service or are just getting started, it’s a good way to get a taste (buffet!) of a composer or era with little investment.

I am not associated with Amazon in any way and receive no benefit from purchases.  I just think these are good deals.

One thought on “99 Cent Classical Music

  1. Most of these performances are by very good people. How can this be? Anyway, I might be going large here and picking up a couple. Thanks.
