Description: World premiere recordings of everything here but the Op. 18 (probably recorded by the British husband-and-wife piano duo who did the transcription), with the major work being the young Cortot's 1904 transcription of the famous sonata, meticulously done, with delicate transpositions of registers and doubling of voices.
