No kidding, the post before you references the biggest box I own... the Mozart Edition at 170 cds!!
That one that came out about three decades ago (if I'm recalling correctly) on Philips?!  :o

I have one of those (an opera set) given to me by a friend some years ago.

PD

No the Brilliant Classics set which is much cheaper!  The only part of the complete Philips set I ever had was the Quartetto Italiano's Mozart SQs.

I've just noticed an odd thing: I have the Bart van Oort's Mozart complete keyboard works on fortepiano. However, although this set seems to include everything else (including the piano 4 hand sonatas K358 and 521), it doesn't include the piano 4 hand sonatas K 381, 497.

Why would he have left these two out?

Well, looking at the disc listings on the Brilliant website, the two works mentioned above are on disc 12 (see pic below) - Dave

Well, this is what this forum is for, if you're too addled by age to see what's in front of you, you can ask someone else to help you out!

Yes, I just had a look in the box and Disc 12 does indeed include those works. The only thing I can say in my defence is that CD 14 is titled Keyboard Works 4-hands and Two Pianos and CD13 is titled Keyboard Works 4-hand Vol II, so somehow I concluded they were the only 4 hand discs in the set.

Anyway, thanks  ::)
