Alfred Cortot The Anniversary Edition - 2012, MP3 (40 CDs)

Any serious student of the piano should own this box. I'm not serious, but I'll keep it anyway.

It doesn't claim absolute completeness, but comes pretty close. For $100 you get 40 CDs + an 80 page booklet.
Alfred Cortot had an unbalanced recorded repertoire.
He was a Chopin specialist: Half his solo piano recordings are of music by Chopin.
His only rival was Arthur Rubinstein, but their repertoire was different:

Rubinstein left us with 3 complete sets each of the Mazurkas, Nocturnes, Polonaises and Scherzi.
He avoided the Preludes (aside from once in 1946), and Etudes.
Cortot left us with 4 complete sets of the Preludes, and 2 sets of Etudes (all in this box).
He avoided the Mazurkas, Nocturnes, Polonaises and Scherzi (aside from a few pieces).

Perhaps the division of labor was EMI's idea, but I can't imagine that their marketing department was happy with 4 sets of Preludes from the same artist.

This box also includes 2 sets of Ballades, 2 sets of Waltzes, 1 set of Impromptus, 4 recordings of Sonata 2, and 2 recordings of Sonata 3.
I am frankly overwhelmed trying to comprehend it all.
Anything worth doing is worth doing three times. I can sympathize (I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

CDs 1-28 are arranged in chronological order by recording date. CDs 29-40 are arranged by genre.

CDs 1-3: Acoustic recordings, 1916-1925. Most of these are American Victors...

Hi Dear Friend!
Thank you for the MP3-files of Alfred Cortot, but The Flac-files of him on don't work?
Please Re-Up them.
