Note that one disc is organ concerti, so you are missing only two discs of the Soler.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

I am quite happy with the Naxos recordings, so no need for me to buy this Soler box however cheap :)

Not as much as not getting it. Just saying.

To save space I’ll dispose of the 6 I already have. No need to duplicate  :).

I already have the organ concerti, can’t say I like them as much as the other keyboard works. My favourite interpreter remains Mario Raskin on Arion/Pierre Vérany - alas he didn’t record all the sonatas. Rowland and Belder have complementary qualities.

It's not in stock, but Amazon lists the Harbach set for $12.99: https://www.amazon.com/Antonio-Soler-Harpsichord-Sonatas-Samuel/dp/B00VFHWDR0/ref=sr_1_13?keywords=soler+sonatas&qid=1572821512&s=music&sr=1-13

Maybe it's legit.  It's definitely worth thirteen bucks.

It is so ordered. Thanks for the tip! It remains to be seen if it will materialize, but Amazon sent me a confirmation of my order. I have about half of the Belder and Rowland sets, with many holes left to plug. This will come in handy !

I have an order confirmation and a delivery date, but no shipment confirmation. I’ll believe it when I unwrap it.

I've ordered the Harbach set too, and it tells me to expect it between November 21 and December 2. Yeah, we'll see.

I also ordered the Sinopoli Schoenberg/Berg/Webern set for $15 from Zoverstocks. Based on past experience with them, it'll probably be after the first of the year before I get it. But I can wait.

Some very shady business practices from Amazon, but this isn’t anything new. They’re known to lie (I’m sorry I meant make ‘excuses’) to customers on a daily basis.

Yeah, Zover can be slow but when I lived in the states I never had a problem with a single order. Another great vendor was Blowitoutahere in Kentucky.
