    Amazon has a couple, new for about US$31. That's standard price, I think for a 3 CD set.

    I bought this in 1985 from a lovely CD shop in the Galleria in Milan, where a lot of my salary went at the time (plus ša change....). The sound burst on my ears like an exuberant party. Raimondi's execution of medaglie incomparabili is still one of my favourite arias.

    That's one of my favourites. I don't think there's another CD of this but I don't mind as I doubt it could be bettered.

    I have this recording, too. Love Sam Ramey's Lord Sidney, Ricciarelli's Madama Cortese, and Francisco Araiza's Count Libenskof.

    OK after Jephtha's massive purchase I feel better about posting mine.

    I got this too - I needed Die feen and Das Liebesverbot and Rienzi to do my centenary listening project and it was cheaper to get this at the Presto sale than buy them separately.



    Also:

    Just doing my part to help our hobbling economy down the road to good health! (I wish all my rationalisations were this easy to swallow!)

    Just bought the Furtwangler Scala Rheingold in new remastering.
    It's supposed to be in great sound now.
    Also bought the Furtwangler complete RAI Ring.
    And the Bohm Capriccio with Janowitz on DGG.

    Will someone please tell me why companies refuse
    to put complete acts on to cds when they will fit?
    Sheeeeeesh!

    Jephtha,
    Love the Klemperer Mozart operas.
    And the Runnicles Hansel and Gretel is wonderful.

    Yes, I know. Actually, most of my purchases these days are to replace recordings I already had at one time. It is a very long story, but suffice to say that at one point in my life I managed to lose ownership of a library of some five thousand or so recordings. I am gradually re-acquiring my lost items, but of course the newer things, like the Curtis Giulio Cesare, are new to me. Still looking out for that fabled Klemperer Abduction, though!
