Yes, if you enlarge the image on the back it shows "SACD Hybrid" meaning it has a CD as well as an SACD layer.

I bought the Vienna box and the Oistrakh box at Amazon.it yesterday. The Vienna box was 55,12 and the Oistrakh was 12,71 after VAT was taken off. Can't beat a deal like that with a stick!

Had a few individual discs but didn't know the box existed. Got it for about $30.

Chuck, I've owned about 1/2 of those over the years, great series even when versions not 'definitive' (usually a false grail anyway.

I'm guessing they just offer tracklists and not repros of the booklets? Stravinsky, Hindemith, Villa-Lobos, Medtner, Roussel/Schmitt, Bartok were all faves. The Messiaen, Shosty & Elgar I had elsewhere etc.

Don't know why EMI can't spend a few hours w/ intern to scan booklets and offer on disc or website but they're hardly the only ones so callous. (Conversely, they occasionally do it right: they're take on a Messiaen Edition remastered Ollie's solo organ works & did include texts.)

vienna box comes to $90 with shipping, which is exorbitant for mailing.  $20 more in the U.S., which will drop.  I can wait.

Vienna + Oistrakh + 2 Blu-Rays = same shipping

I was actually recommended to go here from Chuck's link.  The 20th Century Masterpieces box is a bit more to my own taste, and I only have a few of these specific performances.

http://www.amazon.com/20th-Century-Masterpieces-16-CDs/dp/B001DCQJUY/ref=sr_1_6?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1435601598&sr=1-6&keywords=warner+twentieth+century

There are a few Amazon re-sellers offering this for around $25,which seems like a pretty good deal.

True.  But I had purchased the Oistrakh for under 10 pounds at amazon Uk and have no need to buy blue rays, what with streaming being a good alternative.  I've had not happy experiences with amazon it ever since they jacked their rates up for US customers.

Not just for US, shipping fees have been raised almost everywhere, best bargains are often the marketplace in our own Amazon, for single CDs this is getting the only way

Yet amazon.co.uk has insanely cheap overseas shipping prices.  The Gould Bach box and the Boulez boxes were only a couple of pounds for shipping.

Yes, don't they charge the same low amount for a single CD as for a box set?

re: Horowitz deal on aES, there we go:

Nos ponemos en contacto contigo para informarte de que el precio de "Vladimir Horowitz in Recital-Compl.Columbia Rec." (ASIN: B00RKSTMCC) era manifiestamente erróneo en el momento en que realizaste el pedido en Amazon.es, por lo que lo hemos cancelado y no te hemos cargado el importe del mismo.

so the answer is: no  :(
