  2. Thanks a lot for this series of Albert Wolff's 78s. Do you know this 4-CD set?

    It contains all his recordings of French music with the Lamoureux Orchestra, but it exludes his performances of Rimsky / Mussorgsky you transferred.

  3. I know this set but it's only second hand to buy I think... There's also a Wolff CD on the label Testament with music from Massenet a.o.

  5. Dear Benoît, I ordered the Wolff set and I'm very glad- the sound is terrific! The set excludes also the Franck symphony, so that's an upload I will do someday :-)

    The link is broken, do you think you could repost?
    I love Wolff's recording of the Prelude...

  7. Wow, that was fast! I find it astonishing how clear his rendition of the Prelude is, how simple and coherent it is. Thanks again, your work really contributes a lot to my work as a musician!
