What is Music? How do you define it? Music is a calm moonlit night, the rustle of leaves in Summer. Music is the far off peal of bells at dusk! Music comes straight from the heart and talks only to the heart: it is Love! --- Rachmaninoff

One published work.  Two different pianists as part of mixed recitals on two different discs.

I didn't know that, really. It's a Clair de lune, I think? Heard about it, never heard it.

Yes.  It's a really rather excellent work.  I think there are seven commercial recordings out there.  More pianists really ought to take it up.

That's a different topic.  :D

And if you put it in terms of "combined labels", I think I also have the complete Faure and Liszt, possibly Tchaikovsky too.

For Harry, the list will be shorter to simply list the composers he does not have the complete works of.  :D

Shorter, as in a hundred pages.  :D

The point is that 'complete' is a bit relative, by closer inspection!

Of course it is! I was thinking more in terms of boxsets labelled as such.

FWIW, of my Top Five composers, I have the "complete" works of Mozart, Chopin and Rachmaninoff plus the "almost" complete works of Schubert and Tchaikovsky.

And now that I think of it, I also have the complete Naxos Edition(s) of Johann Strauss, Sr., Johann Strauss, Jr. and Josef Strauss8)

I am too lazy to make a list, but a few baroque composers with very little surviving works (e.g. Nikolaus Bruhns) Also, I have the Complete Mozart box. Elgar has some obscure small works I don't have.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.
