The Supraphon Portrait set has hit the download sites, and sad to say, the download does not include the Janacek works.
I assume they couldn't get the download license for these recordings (still owned by Nonesuch?). 

By the way, the Schumann concerto in the box is the recording with Mata; I think the recording with Neumann is preferable (why not include both?).  However that Supraphon disc seems to be still in print, as are the Brahms concertos with Belohlavek.  The Connoisseur Society recording of the Chopin Preludes, which I think is preferable to the Supraphon recording,  is also not included.

Where are the download sites. Do they include the DVD?
Cheers

Qobuz and supraphonline.cz.  I don't see any videos in the download files.  I also missed that there is some Schumann and Brahms missing from the downloads (on CD7 in the box) that were also licensed from Nonesuch.  (A different Kinderszenen from the one that was on a Supraphon CD?  I haven't checked.)

I let it be known to a good friend of mine that I was excited to see that there was a new Moravec set coming out soon (and as I mentioned elsewhere) and that I was looking to see how much of it I didn't already own....and, well, he beat me to the punch and went ahead and ordered it for me as an early Christmas present.  As he said, "I know that he's 'your guy'"!   :D

As an aside, there are two or three new(ish) live CDs of his which I don't own and am wondering here whether or not anyone here has them or has heard them via stream?  Off the top of my head, the first new-to-me one is the Twelth Night one.  There's also a Grieg, Ravel and Prokofiev piano concertos one...which I think is live?  Or at least new?

By the way, for what it's worth (if you don't already own it), the Live from Prague one (which came out on Hanssler) is a wonderful CD...it's a favorite of mine.  :)

Yeah, none of the Nonesuch stuff from the 80s are in the download:

Schumann - Scenes from childhood and Arabesque, 1984
Brahms - Op. 117, 1-3, Op. 76/2 and Op. 79/2 - 1984
Janacek - On an overgrown path (3 selections), In the Mists and the Sonata - 1983

And yes, the Schumann is different than the one previously released on Supraphon CD.

I bought that one. Have not heard the Prokofiev yet but the other two are certainly good performances. Moravec was always very good in the Ravel.
