Each concert is divided into three parts (to make them under 100MB each), so get all 6 zip files, and just unzip them.
Everything is here:

or, (smaller, but the same thing):

Hi Guillermo, it's Fabio from Rome. I wanted to thank you for the posts dedicated to Prokofiev. I found only one problem: the second file of the piano concerto no.4 is damaged and I am unable to extract it from the zip folder. Could you please check? Thank you very much. All the best for your marvelous blog!

Guillermo said...

All fixed, and I tried it out, I think it all OK now!

Discobole said...

Guillermo, fine!, zipping is much easier than stuffing (and unzipping easier than unstuffing...)
Having enjoyed the previous batch, i jump avidly on this one...
This violin concerto I know quite well sounded new to me, or rather there were things never heard that way.
Muchisimas gracias

Fabioromano said...

Thanks, Guillermo. Now it works!

Hi Guillermo. I'm a silent follower of your blog. I wish I could contribute, but I'm afraid I'll never be able to. I just wanted to make you aware that the link to mediafire with the 3rd and 4th parts of the Prokofiev series by Gergiev offers only 4, not 6 files. For March 30 there's just the 5th Symphony. Best, karetnikov (just my nick, not the composer!)

Hi, I'd just like to echo the comment from 11/20/2010. I'd love to hear the Op. 47, Op. 63 and the encore, but parts 1 and 2 of volume 4 aren't posted.

I love this site!
