Welcome to Colchester Classics where Classical Music matters!

OUR CD SERVICE – Colchester Classis is a CD, LP and DVD mail order company celebrating 11 years service to those starting their love affair with music, clever collectors, also to music groups and at concerts. We’re as passionate about providing the best service as we were when we started in 2006.

For all enquiries please ring 0800 999 6994, email liz@colchesterclassics.co.uk or click on the Contact Colchester Classics button top RHS of your screen.

OUT and ABOUT – In addition to our mail order service we also pop out of the office with our pop-up CD stand offering CDs at concerts, choirs and festivals often including CD signings with international  musicians performing in Essex and nearby Suffolk.

This month we will be at Imogen Cooper’s concert at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds where she will be performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto N0.9 accompanied by the Aurora Orchestra.

Last month we were at a concert in Colchester where international pianist Noriko Ogawa was performing Grieg’s Piano Concerto. We were delighted to offer her recording on BIS of Grieg’s popular work and host a CD signing on our pop-up CD stand.

Next month we will be back at The Apex offering CDs and hosting a CD signing on our pop-up CD stand with both international violinist Tasmin Little and eminent pianist Piers Lane.

Tasmin Little kindly commented on our CD mail order service “For anyone who likes a personal service in CDs and prefers to speak to an actual person…. a fantastic service and all you need to do is give her a call.” (FREEPHONE 0800 999 6994)
