ArkivMusic.com is having a sale on all of their Naxos CDs. Most of them are $6, I think.

That said, I need some help from the experts here so I know what to order
Which Naxos recordings are particularly good?

I just got this recording in SACD/Hybrid: Canteloube: Chants D'auvergne / Gens, Casadesus, Et Al. It's even cheaper in the stereo only format!

-The Robert Craft edition: Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Webern, etc.
- Schenck: Le Nimphe di Rheno (viola da gamba - Lex voix humaines) vol. I and II (Marvellous!!!)
- In the edition Spanish Classics there are a lot of fine cds. One fantastic orchestra it's Castille and León Symphony Orchestra. You can get discs of Rodrigo (besides his Aranjuez Concerto). His Concerto in modo galante for Cello it's a small 'diamond'.
-Of Messiaen i like the discs of Hakon Austbo
-Of Shostakovich the preludes for piano / Sherbakov.
- Haydn fine quartets by Kodaly Quartet (discs of Op.64 and op. 76)

By the way, in Spain Naxos Discs costs 5.95 € always and at offer you can get them at 4.50 €. One thing we can get cheaper than in the rest of countries

It's hard to go wrong with them. Naxos has earned a reputation as a super-high-quality budget label, and has pushed the envelope with recordings of little-known works.

I like the "American Classics" series, especially works by Hanson, Creston, Flagello, Diamond, Hovhaness, etc. Also, cehck out the Ralph Vaughan Williams Symphonia Antarctica (sp?), supposedly one of the best digital recordings ever made!

New York Jazz Collective: I Don't Know This World Without Don Cherry and Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven
Mike Nock/Marty Ehrlich: Waiting Game

"I Don't Know This World" is especially recommended for the stellar writing and for the appearance of trumpeter Baikida Carroll.

Not to thread jack, but can anyone recommend some great Russian music off the Naxos label? I'm finally getting Gliere's Red Poppy, I have Pictures as well as Rimsky-Korsakov's The Snow Maiden, but was looking at this disc: http://www.arkivmusic.com/classical/...1&comp_id=6347

Anyone?

Thanks,
alex
