Curious. I would have suggested a difference between the German release date and some others, but then would DG not reflect the German one? Hmm.

Also, this seems to be connected to a series of "Unknown Richard Strauss" albums from roughly 20 years ago. I say that because Karl Anton Rickenbacher is involved in both.

EDIT: Even more interestingly, the German language version of the DG website provides a link direct to JPC. The English language version doesn't.

Yes, indeed. This is just a reissue from that Koch series released many years ago. Curious, that you found that English version DG link. I wonder what exactly is going on here? I’m proud to own this set, but it does make me question the availability of it worldwide.

I suppose it's conceivable that JPC has some kind of deal where they are the exclusive sellers for a period. Such things do happen.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

That’s entirely possible for sure. Anyway, I suppose my fellow Straussians will want to jump on this set via JPC, especially those that missed this series when it was initially released. Per usual with JPC shipping to the US, it was slow, but not as slow as it could’ve been I suppose.

Already bought/received my copy - very good value although quite a bit is not really that unknown.  Recordings come up well and it certainly helps fill gaps

Accidently stumbled across this on Qobuz:



The whole set seems to be there (I'm also aware of the Scribendum set).  It's listed as released by Musical Heritage Society, which was defunct the last I heard.  I wonder what the story is.  There's also Haydn piano sonatas by Arthur Balsam and Bach by Jorg Demus, among other things.

Yeah, it’s good for the filling of gaps, but as you said, a lot of this music wasn’t ‘unknown’ to me. It seems now that I have a rather good sized Strauss collection.

 I listened to the whole thing, with great pleasure. There is also a set of the Paris symphonies.
It's all good...

Essential for me, I’ve been revisiting her Lebègue and her Jacquet de la Guerre and I like it very much - that’s what made me go to the Plectra site, where I noticed that this new D’Anglebert is forthcoming.

Regarding Ms. Shebanova:
 
Anyone familiar with her?

Well, I'd like to second that request - believe she is one of the pianists (many discs recorded) in the 'The Real Chopin' box on period instruments - the one shown states an 1849 Erard piano (restored original or reproduction?) - would like a 'period instrument' performance of these works - JPC has an offer starting in early June for 100 Euros (or about 120 USD + shipping, i.e. I'd be paying nearly $10/disc - UMM?) - but I assume those w/ the 'Real Box' have some thoughts on her performances.  Dave :)

I found her contribution to "The Real" box a pleasant surprise. She is a very good Chopin interpreter, one on the best on the set. But I wouldn't call it "historically informed", rather excellent Classic style Chopin that happens to be performed on a Érard. A pianist of an older generation, and actually no longer with us... she passed away in 2011. She also did a complete Chopin set on the Polish Dux label.

Thanks Que for the comments - I read the Wiki bio this morning; died at only 58 years old (no cause given?); attached is a single review of her Dux recordings from MusicWeb, assume on a modern piano - the reviewer felt she was equal to Ohlsson's performances - a couple reviews in Fanfare of her Chopin works w/ orchestra were less flattering (not attached).  My only 'complete solo' set of Chopin is w/ Pietro De Maria.

Checking Spotify, the orchestral recordings are present along w/ a half dozen or so single albums from 'The Real Chopin' (recording dates in the first decade of 2000, as expected) - I'm assuming that this 'new' box offering are these recordings plus more, including the orchestral works?  Dave :)
