This is a great series :) I feel lucky that Simax recorded so much of his music with their limited resources.

Ravel - CD Designo-Series, from Membran, 4 Euros on a local sale
An interesting set if one wants to trace early Ravel recordings.

Track list:
http://www.systemrecords.co.uk/ravel-maurice-maurice-ravel-p-981767.html?osCsid=eh8a5uldn3opc2sp1r0m73t0f3

Had a lot of the content which consists solely of historical recordings (as opposed to most of the sets in this 4 CD composer portrait series, usually mingling old and lesser known, not very interesting recent recordings). But I did not own the Quartet/Calvet4, Trio/Rubinstein,Heifetz,Piatigorsky, Introduction-Allegro/Laskine,Moyse,Calvet4, and the Ansermet recordings of the 1940s. The Wittgenstein/Walter recording of the Left-hand Concerto here is better than Wittgenstein´s with Scherchen, at times extremely wild, but Wittgenstein´s playing style seems to have included a lot of errors in general, very far from today´s performance praxis.

A new composer for me. The samples of both CD'S, made a huge impression on me, his wayward writing has me hooked.

Unfortunately, the Urana CDs aren't included in the discography.

Thanks.

Sarge

I just realised that I do have the Russian Revelation disc - here are the performance dates

Sonata No. 6 in A - 2 May 1966
Sonata No. 7 in B flat - 10 May 1970
Sonata No. 8 in B flat - 17 April 1961

I found a reference to the Urania recording (different cover but same pieces) here - http://www.ariama.com/albums/prokofiev-piano-sonatas-(sviatoslav-richter-urania)

The dates of those are earlier - 1956/1958

Hope that is of some help

Thanks. Yes, big help  8)

Edit: I wonder, though, if they might be different performances. The Urania cover of the CDs I was asking about says 1959-61 Original Productions. In any case, it seems they are probably not the same performances as on the Revelation disc...except possibly the Eighth.

Better than I have in the past. I didn't drift off this time  :D  Give it a few more listens and it might just click finally.

I have a complete set done by Neeme Jarvi on Orfeo, but the reviews are so good that I figured I take the plunge, and buy this cheap set too!

I own the series too, Daniel. I haven't even listened to any of them yet. :) I'm interested in other composers at the moment.
