Silvermans Beethoven 32

I'm wondering does anyone know where I can purchase the Silverman 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas?

The set is sold-out and I don't anticipate that it will be repressed, given that the label that released it (Orpheummasters) is defunct. We _have_ just reissued the Orpheummasters CD of Robert Silverman performing the two Rachmaninoff piano sonatas: see http://ssl.blueearth.net/primedia/home.php.

Unfortunate.

It's both a great recording and a wonderful performance.

Bummer that the Silverman set is now unavailable - it's one of the best modern (ie, digital) cycles recorded. Perhaps the folks at Brilliant Classics can buy the Orpheum Masters catalog and reissue a third LvB sonata cycle?

At least the Rachmaninov disc will be available. I picked it up at a local store (which still had Silverman's earlier recording of the last three LvB sonatas until I bought it it!) a year or two ago, and it's superb. And I don't generally care for Rach. The first sonata, in particular, is a treat.

It's funny how unattainability affects your desire; now I'm REALLY curious about the Silverman's cycle. I own several cycles, from Schnabel's to the on-going Paul Lewis'... would love to hear the Silverman version.

I have a set in perfect condition up on eBay right now... no reserve, no minimum.
