dealsbigger bach set: various artists: mp3 downloads…


Looks like the other Big Boxes (e.g. Mozart, Vivaldi, Handel) are also on sale for $0.99


Steven Spielberg was discussing his new project -- an action docudrama
about famous composers starring top movie stars. Sylvester Stallone,
Steven Seagal, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger being courted
for the top roles.

Spielberg really hoped to have the box office "oomph" of these
superstars, so he was prepared to allow them to select the composers
they would portray, as long as they among the most famous.

"Well," started Stallone, "I've always admired Mozart. I would love to
play him."

"Chopin has always been my favorite, and my image would improve if people
saw me playing the piano," said Willis. "I'll play him."

"I've always been partial to Strauss and his waltzes," said Seagal. "I'd
like to play him."

Spielberg was very pleased with these choices. "Sounds splendid." Then,
looking at Schwarzenegger, he asked, "Who do you want to be, Arnold?"

Arnold replied, "I'll be Bach!"


When I enter "big box" in the Amazon search field, a lot of the collections are much more expensive. For example, the Big Brahms Box is $9.99, the Big Baroque Box is $9.49, the Big Beethoven Box is $8.99, etc. Are you finding these elsewhere for 99¢?

Even so, there are still a lot of "big" collections for $.99, $1.99, and $2.99 that are incredible bargains.

I guess I need to download another one today, just to stay in practice. ;-)


@crowbite: As you note, Bach Guild has put out a bunch of these "Big Box" sets, and almost all (if not all) of them were introduced at $0.99 with a jump at some point up to $10 or so. So it is definitely worth scooping up the $0.99 ones (Bigger Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart) now. They are all great.


I think the phrase is "darn you Amazon, take my money!" :)


Just grabbed this. Forgot I had a 99 cent mp3 promo code, so I just got this for free. Not bad.


This is an incredible deal. All the performers in this collection are well-known in the classical circle and the recording is solid. What a great way to introduce classical music to new listeners!


Wow, 293 Bach arrangements for $.99. Awesome!


Love love love Bach but have a question. The fine print talks about the "Amazon Cloud Service." Can you download the music you get for $.99 (such a deal!) onto a non-Internet-enabled MP3 device, or can you only listen to the music on something capable of networking like a PC or tablet?


They are non-DRMed MP3s. You can download them to your computer and then transfer them to any device you want.

The "cloud" part means Amazon keeps track of what you've bought, and you can, in addition, stream them when you have an internet connection to any device that can connect to Amazon's cloud player.


@jcharpentier, thanks for the information -- good news! Off to go get me some Bach, and at these prices, I'm sure I'll be Bach for more!!
