This valuable reference aid, now completely revised and expanded, assesses the huge and growing range of mid-priced, bargain, and super-bargain CDs of classical music, including doubles, duos, and twofers. Among them are a wide selection of modern digital recordings of high quality -- many of them preferable to any full-priced alternatives -- plus outstanding analog recordings from the vintage LP era and notable CD transfers of key recordings from 78s. The guide evaluates interpretations and performances, and considers both the quality of the recorded sound and the value for money in terms of playing time.
