Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a prolific composer, and his piano concertos are often considered the pinnacle of his instrumental output. He composed a total of 30 piano concertos, of which the first 7 are orchestral arrangements of sonatas by other composers. Of the other 23 concertos, Nos. 7 and 10 require multiple pianos.
Neglected in the nineteenth century, their revival in the mid 20th century have resulted in a plethora of recordings. Among all of these, a few stand out but none more than the cycle by the American pianist Murray Perahia with the English Chamber Orchestra, recorded between 1976 and 1984. Gramophone has labeled it the definitive set of Mozart's piano concertos, the Penguin Guide to Compact Discs awarded it the coveted Rosette, and the French magazine Diapason its Diapason D'Or.

I got the set off a public tracker in APE format. I converted the files to WAV, split them to individual tracks via .CUE in EAC, corrected the gaps, and then transcoded the tracks to FLAC -5. Finally, I tagged them.
I'm only able to seed for 12 hours or so each day, usually starting 0600 GMT. If I'm missing after that period, I haven't dropped out, but will be back the next day. I'll seed till I have a ratio of 2.0 or till there are at least 6-7 seeds, whichever is earlier.
