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.
