Excellent performances but hard to find set

This set was extracted from Brilliant Classic’s complete set of Shostakovich’s works. The performances are quite good especially the violin works. But this set is just about impossible to find. I was lucky enough to find it through a third party seller. I dont understand why some Brilliant Classics CD’s are so hard to obtain. If you can find it at all this one is worth having.
