    From my local secondhand store (he must be glad whenever he sees me walk in the door).

    For this one, he let me trade in my single-disc version, which contained only two of the five concertos:

    My music store likewise. I took 5 CD sets in the other day that I paid $5 for and got $15. I have about a dozen more sets at $1 each I plan on taking next time I go.

    My music store is not that convenient to home, so I don't get there often. When I do, I am inclined to buy something. I just isn't a complete trip to the music store unless you discover some interesting CD and purchase it.

    Continuing to build my Mozart library, with another visit to the secondhand store. Seven discs at $3 per; who can go wrong?

    Sadly, no, or I definitely would have. A good deal pricier on Amazon.

    I have this divertimenti on authentic instruments and love it. Had it on vinyl back in the day and picked up a CD a few years ago (back cover with track list):

    Still more Mozart on order. If he would just stop writing music, I might be able to catch up.
