Picked it up from Acorn, The complete Johann Sebastian Bach Catalog, 153 CDs, each averaging about an hour’s worth of music. I just listened to The Musical Offering. Superb. Tonight, I jump into The Goldberg Variations, The Well Tempered Clavier or maybe The Art of the Fugue. But besides the keyboard and chamber works, there is an enormous amount of choral work I didn’t even know existed. The Warner Brothers logo is on the box.
It comes out (with shipping and taxes) to well under $2 per CD. The performances are by artists I’m not very familiar with (mostly Mittel Europan) but so far I am impressed by the quality. Hopefully, the rest of the music is just as good. And the packaging is first rate. Delivery time was less than a week! Acorn also sells similar boxed sets for Beethoven, Chopin, Handel and Mozart.
Its a new family heirloom.
