Unreleased – Rare Recordings

Alexis Weissenberg has left many unreleased recordings and some others that have disappeared

from the market several years ago.

Most are in reel-to-reel tapes and others in 45 rpm (EP) and 33 rpm (LP).

For now, we have only made a digital copy in order to prevent the deterioration of the recordings.

Later on, we will consider the publication of all that may be of interest.

Please be aware of the modest sound quality of these small files and that not all browsers do support the same media formats.

This section will be increased gradually.
