Offered by Medipaq® from Great Ideas™

3.0 out of 5 stars Fabric and foam itself feels good though., 7 July 2014
Too large and elastic rather feeble, so not staying in place. Fabric and foam itself feels good though.

Schubert: Impromptus, D 899 & D 935

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing Schubert!, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely spellbinding.
Will sit happily next to my Paul Lewis and Richter Schubert recordings.
Not always a big fan of Uchida, but she just gets this absolutely right with the perfect level of poetry, sensitivity and power.
Absolutely as good as the best of the reviews already on Amazon!


The Ninth: Beethoven and the World in 1824
The Ninth: Beethoven and the World in 1824
by Harvey Sachs
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.11

5.0 out of 5 stars A great and informative read, putting Ludwig Van B in context, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love music and history, but not formally educated in either and still find this a great, fun read that at the same time reveals so much about Beethoven, his music, the world during his life and his interactions with it.
Fascinating and very hard to put down - especially given its nominally educative nature - for this avid thriller reader.

TOMY Play to Learn Hide 'n' Squeak Eggs
Price: £5.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Eggs delight!, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Went down a treat with my niece who could not stop playing with them.
And not just on the day of giving either, making this very high praise indeed as she's not exactly stuck for alternatives...
Bog bonus: these are great to play with together and are also fully grandparent proof!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pletnev in Person delights!, 25 April 2014
Found a review in one of the classical music magazines and can only wholeheartedly agree: this is a magical CD that any piano afficionado should have in their collection.
And not just for the wonderful music, the recording of Pletnev's beautiful tone is also spot-on. Amazing what can be done in what was only a casual recording. Puts to shame some mainline recordings by the big record companies!

Belkin A3L980b02MWH-HS 2m Cat6 Snagless STP Patch Cable - White
Price: £5.51

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cable!, 23 July 2013

Definitely better than the cut-prize competition.
Well made and am confident it will last for a long time with good shielding, so definitely worth the (modestly) extra cost.


Mortal Mischief: (Liebermann Papers 1)
Mortal Mischief: (Liebermann Papers 1)
by Frank Tallis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad holiday read..., 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Did not quite bring the characters alive for me and is a bit too much Agatha Christie with a dollop of very basic psychology to my liking.
(for reference: I'm not a psychologist, but still found that component not that enlightening at all.)
Am personally going to give this series a miss, but if you like Agatha C and similar it will probably be right up your street!

Imperial Tech: In car charger for Apple iPad 2, iPad 3 (Black)
Offered by Invero
Price: £4.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Apple charger, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works, without looking great or particularly robust.
Does the trick for a good price, and at the cost would not be too upset if it malfunctioned or if I indeed stepped on it by accident...

Update: did break down pretty rapidly hence only 2 stars now. Hope I was just unlucky, but as stated in my original review I was not necessarily surprised given the way it looked...

Looks fine, with no lingering smell and does the job nicely!
Good size for teabags and good hinges and clasp.


Mozart - Piano Concertos Nos 5,14,16
Mozart - Piano Concertos Nos 5,14,16

Price: £22.18

4.0 out of 5 stars Period recording of Mozart keyboard concertos, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent recordings, which makes me wonder why it is no longer in the catalogue.
Think I slightly prefer the English Baroque Soloists / Bilson / Gardiner.
