 * These purchase statistics only partly reflect interest and taste because 'smaller' composers are less represented on the CD market.
   For example, I own most of the currently available Luigi Nono CDs but probably not even 1% of the Mozart.

** Particularly the per year figures can be biased by the aquirement of voluminous single-composer box sets (mostly gifts).
