ArkivMusic Newsletter

Dear ArkivMusic Customer,

As part of ArkivMusic's ongoing clearance sale on titles from Deutsche Grammophon and Decca's labels, we have a whole lot of CD collections at bargain prices to suit every taste, from composer best-ofs and highlights of a musical period to favorites for voice or piano. We also have artist profiles that gather significant recordings together. Stock on some of these titles is very limited, and there are no backorders at these prices, so don't hesitate!

Here are some of our top clearance collections:

Rachmaninov Panorama / Richter, Ashkenazy...
Richter's Second Piano Concerto is a classic, and both of Ashkenazy's performances (The Bells and the Paganini Rhapsody) number among the best around. Maazel's Second Symphony is a swift, light, elegant reading which owes its inspiration to the way the composer played his own music.
