  1. Thank you very very much for this rip! I only knew Kempff playing Schubert’s Sonatas and some Klavierkonzerts by WAM (especially the legendary recordings with Ferdinand Leitner and the Bamberger Symphony). Thank you dearly for the absolutely essential of Beethovens Piano Concertos! And about your vacation? How is that going? Wish you a good time…

  2. Thanks very much for this post. By any chance will you be continuing this series so we can assemble the whole 75 lp collection? (crossing my fingers)

    • oh Randy…it’s near impossible to find all the remaining boxes in good condition like this one…..but i do my best to make it possible; this will be a mission through the next 2-3 years – the same i started for the “Edizione Vivaldi” by Philips, you know, those blue boxes…..several boxes and several records, containing ALL works by Vivaldi – have got only two sets in super shape and acceptable pricing…

      PS: check the complete LvB Symphonies…are too a part of the edition…

  3. Herr Rachmann Ich bedanke mich fuer das Gelegenheitsgeschenk .

    Thank you very much indeed, wunderbar.
    The only problem is how to audition it safely…
    My Geiger counter


    goes mad with clicks and crackles when in close proximity to it.
    But being stubborn & curious I figured it out instantly .

    I put on my NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) suit :


    and Voila ! This is what I call safe listening / auditioning – pure delight.

    Sir, either you safe keep your vinyls at a nuclear plant core safe deposit box or your vinyl supplier is from CHERRNOBILL ?

    Anyone who is challenged to listen to this masterpiece can get a proper
    NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) suit for cheap on ebay – advisable for avoiding health hazzard and getting pure musical climax enjoyment …

    God Bless You (if you believe in him – it is his job to do it anyway)
    for your generous gift of music – nirvana … 😛

  4. Mr. Rachmaninov,
    I always like your Hi Def works; and this Beethoven especially.

    Also I have a Filesonic premium account as well as my remaining months on Hot file.
    Thanks again.


    • Hi Mr. A…..it’s incredible that nobody reported this in almost two years. Only you and Zguy, in our other house.
      I simply forgot to split the file…both romances are there included. A correct zip is loading now, with the splitted romances.

  5. Thank You very very much for all these fine and delightful recordings.
    One question : why vinyls on file factory & the rest on filepost ? Couldn’t be better to post all on one server ?
    Thanks again

    • Mon ami, we are three different rippers here, with three different philosophies concerning musical mediums and with different servers. Nous offer to you all the music for free, so it is up to you to follow us, where ever we post the music. For sure tu entend bien que we cannot act viceversa? 😉

      Enjoy the variety of the offered music, friend!

  6. Could you kindly post the piano sonatas boxset, by Kempff? I’ve been waiting for this rip for long time, I’m afraid I may have no chance to hear it, as ripped by you, which always in superb quality! And it is truly sad to hear you will quit. All the best wishes to you….
