Catapulting into Classical

A headlong leap into music, history, and composing

99-Cent Box Sets!

Maybe you’re not quite ready to take the plunge and spend hundreds of dollars to buy the Complete Works of Mozart.   Or John Eliot Gardiner’s Complete Bach Cantatas.

Here is a list of box sets of classical music that you can buy at for 99 cents.  These offerings change from time to time, so your results may vary.   For 99 cents you get to download all of the tracks in a particular box set (sometimes well over a hundred tracks!) in mp3 format.

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.

In time you may find you like the interpretation of a given piece by another artist or conductor  preferable, but this is a quick, inexpensive way to get an intoduction to the works of a particular composer–for 99 cents.

I am not associated with Amazon in any way and receive no benefit from purchases.  I just think these are good deals, in particular, for those who don’t subscribe to a streaming service.
