Every Classical Tune You’ll Ever Want.

Why fill your house with LPs, CDs, or DVDs when you can have all you might ever want to listen to or watch at the touch of a button? Indeed, if you believe the title of one classical compilation disc, all the classical tunes you’ll ever want can be comfortably contained on one CD. Who needs a massive collection?!

Although I don’t regret my profligacy as a collector (and even if I did, it’s a bit late now), I do sometimes feel sad that something I invested so much time money and effort in, is now so devalued. But then I reach for an old LP I haven’t played in decades, and rediscover the music afresh and – well, maybe it was worthwhile after all. Oscar mate – you were so right…
