These SACDs would normally go straight to my wish list. Unfortunately though, like most new releases nowadays, they're MIA on SA-CD.net. Either way, the Caro Mitis website is also listing an upcoming Prokofiev/Hindemith ballet music disc (CM 0012011), which looks quite promising as well. I'll be checking vendor sites for all, specially JPC, which usually gets Caro Mitis stock in advance.

We have to be more patient and understanding of Zeus' known predicament and concerns regarding new releases. It's a matter of time surely as catalogue numbers have been allocated by Caro Mitis.

Ordering directly at www.caromitis.com works only for territory of Russia. [Newest releases are already available for ordering at the website].

Presumably Zeus is waiting on Caro Mitis for info?

I had answered the question about on-line ordering. Works only within territory of Russia. Outside Russia you could order on-line from local amazons, jpc etc.

Just calculated. We can celebrate a release of the 50th SA-CD by Caro Mitis! Beethoven vol. 6 is released and ready for shipment. Congratulations are welcome :-)!

Thank you so much for so many wonderful SACDs. Your Beethoven and Telemann series have been revelatory in performance and sound. Looking forward to the next 50, maybe with Tchetuev tackling the Prokofiev piano sonatas... But please don't forget to add your new releases to SA-CD.net's database via the new submission tool (/submit).

The Caro Mitis Beethoven series continues with the release of Volume 6. I have not been able to locate one yet.

For the volumes 1, 2 & 3 they used a Faziolli grand piano, for 4 & 5 they switched the Steinway grand, and now on Volume 6 they have a J. Becker grand piano, a restored one possibly dating back to the turn of the century.

I know nothing about J. Becker grands, did some internet search including listening to UTube performances on this piano, it is hard to tell much from the crappy audio of UTube but thank god it is not a fortepiano, hate those clunkers, but it also lacks the full body sound of the modern grands.
Does anyone know anything about this particular instrument and would care to comment?

Keeping fingers crossed for the late sonatas, hope Caro Mitis returns to modern pianos for sonatas # 28 and up.

I e-m'd Caro Mitis two weeks ago asking where in the UK one could source their new recordings. Thus far they have not been courteous enough to reply...

Another Exton?

Well, all the late sonatas will be performed and recorded on Fazioli again (same instrument). Vol. 7 will be again recorded on Becker - amazing instrument for the early sonatas.
In UK distributor for Caro Mitis is Metronome (info@metronomedistribution.co.uk; http://www.metronomedistribution.co.uk/)

BTW, I couldn't find your inquiry about vol.6. Did you use a proper email address ?
