I got the Big Beethoven Box when it was 0.99, I'm really impressed with the quality, and it's nice that the tracks are in order of when they were written. Definitely downloading this!

You must get this now! Nearly 14 hours of Mozart, complete works, for under a buck. In a few days the price will go up to $7.99 or $9.99.

Woot please add "MP3" to the title and tags.

Wow -- another great deal at Amazon -- thanks for posting this info -- mine is downloading now !!

@ojohn: I agree with your sentiment, but this is not Wolfies complete works. You can find his complete works on CD on Amazon, but it runs well over 100 CDs... the guy was quite prolific!

Why not? Even I can afford this !

This ended up being free for me, hopefully it is for everyone else also. When I look at the invoice it says price 0.99 and then says Promotions -0.99 for a total of $0

@mrkaylor: This was probably from a previous Amazon purchase where they put the promotional credit in your account then it is automatically deducted when you purchase an mp3.

@j0hnlind: You are right - what I meant is that the works that are there are complete, not excerpts or chopped up as on some other 99 cent or $1.99 classical compilations sold on Amazon. (But those are usually pretty good in their own way.)

As a techno incompetent, and never having used "Cloud", how do I download this onto a MacBook Air? Is there a monthly/maintenance charge for using Cloud?
Thanks.

Is that a Big Mac Book, or a Mac Book Double with cheese?

Seriously, I can't give you instructions for the Mac platform... maybe someone else will. I use Windoze.

And seriously... Amazon's cloud is free if you're storing stuff that you bought on Amazon.

@nadh: Any MP3s like this you buy on Amazon go into your Amazon Cloud instantly. Go to your Amazon Cloud Player from the main www.amazon.com screen, find the album, select the tracks you want or select all by clicking the checkbox above all tracks and click the Download button. If you have the Amazon Downloader installed, the MP3s will be downloaded and integrated into iTunes. If you don't have the Downloader already, you'll be prompted to install it. Do that, then it will download the MP3s to your iTunes. You won't have to download the Downloader program again.

In other words, it's easy, after the first time you do it.

There's no fee for the Cloud Player and storage for anything you buy from Amazon. You can upload up to 250 MP3s of your own there for free. If you want more than 250 tracks that you upload, there is a monthly fee. Still, any MP3s you buy from Amazon are always stored there free forever (so far).

great deal - especially if your dad happens to have been born on Mozarts bday!

Awesomely totally excellent deal! C'mon - 99 little ones!

Looks to be another stellar bargain from the folks down at the Bach Guild, following up on similar $0.99 compilations from Beethoven, Bach, Mahler, Tchaikovsky (sic perhaps, too lazy to confirm), and Brahms.

Instant buy.

There are some first-rate names in this collection: Peter Serkin, Alfred Brendel, I Solisti di Zagreb, Josef Suk, Paula Robison, and the English Chamber Orchesta. These are all artists who are heard frequently on classical music stations. So one would expect that these performances are pretty good.

I also note that there is not much duplication between this collection and "The 99 Most Essential Mozart Masterpieces" which was offered previously by Amazon.

I have always wondered why Amazon sometimes encodes different movements of the same piece at different bitrates. I could understand if one given piece (e.g. a certain symphony) was encoded at one time at one bitrate, and another piece (e.g. a certain sonata) was encoded at a different time at a different bitrate. But Amazon often uses different bitrates for different movements within the same work! Why would they do that? But for 99 cents, I can live with it.

All in all, this looks like another great deal.
