Our April drawing is for three copies of the Brilliant Classics set of Vivaldi’s Complete Concertos and Sonatas. This is the first time all of Vivaldi’s Concertos and Sonatas are in one set, which will be treasured for a lifetime. Go to the Brilliant Classics web site to see complete information on this set. Just click on Register To Win on our home page and you’ll have an excellent chance of being a winner. The sets will be shipped out early next month and the winners listed below.
The winner of the 39 DVD + 4 CD Baroque Opera set, our March drawing from Harmonia mundi, was Fred Rauscher, Carmel, IN. (He listed that most of his collection was in Classical. Those registrants who fail to fill out this area are passed over.)
AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began as a local program in San Francisco and then in 1985 as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, and aired for 13½ years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations. In September 1998 its web site for program listings was expanded to this free Internet publication. April 2016 is our 205th issue! All disc reviews are added thru the month as written and received, often daily, amounting to nearly 100 a month. The Home Page lists the latest published reviews. Vinyls, Pure Audio Blu-rays and other hi-res formats are included in the SACD/Hi-Res Section, as well as xrcds. The site has been redesigned and improved. Please let us know if you find any errors.
