Yep, I missed it by a day. Oops.

BUT … if you want a real deal, you can go to Amazon and get the Big Bach Set MP3 download for all of 99¢ today. (The deal is only for yesterday and today as far as I can tell.) I haven’t checked it out very carefully, so I can’t vouch for quality at this point, but for 99¢ it’s worth a go, don’t you think?

Next week Symphony Silicon Valley will be doing this (but not with Baroque instruments). I’ll be on third, in case you are wondering.

… and that’s just the beginning! Don’t you want to hear more? 🙂

If you are looking for some sheet music and want to save a few extra pennies you could check out Sheet Music Plus for the next week. They already have lower prices compared to some, and now you get free shipping as well (for orders over $25).

If you aren’t sure what you want you can check out a couple of lists I have here:

My very outdated personal music library (I sure do need to add the music I’ve purchased in the past few years. Yikes!) or my list of oboe music.

I will be honest here and say any time you purchase something via a link from my site I get a small bit of money. It takes months for it to reach an amount that will finally result in a check, but it’s something and it helps pay for this site. (I’ve pondered dropping the connection to Sheet Music Plus, but I’d first want to find a different supplier; for some reason they don’t work well with Macs and while they are aware of the problem they’ve yet to fix it. Grumble, grumble.)

Right after I finish with Anna Karenina I move on to Symphony Silicon Valley. I’ve located a read deal for ticket prices. I don’t know if this offer is up for the long haul, or if it’ll disappear, so check it out now!

It appears that you purchase a voucher and then exchange it for a ticket either at the hall or, ahead of time, at the symphony office.
