Recent developments in the recording industry have complicated the question of availability. The gradual disappearance of brick-and-mortar stores and the increased role of the Internet in sales (including downloads), not to mention such on-demand services as ArchiveCDs and ReDiscovery Music, have made it difficult (or at least foolhardy) to state with any certainty which recordings are and are not available. Sadly, very few of the early LP performances (including those conducted by Rózsa himself), have thus far appeared on CD, but anything is possible! For the earlier LP Discography see the Pro Musica Sana archive, PMS 28. Page 15. Those interested in buying recordings of Rózsa’s concert music are advised to check such reliable online retailers as

3. How To Use the Discography
The “Discs” table lists each LP or CD in more-or-less chronological order (except for a few late additions). Each disc has a unique number, which provides a cross-reference to the “Works” table. In addition to Label, Catalog Number, Contents (Rózsa works only), Format, and Issue Date (where known), this table gives Disc Title (if any), Producer(s) (if known), and miscellaneous Notes (including whether the disc is a reissue of an earlier recording).
The “Works” table lists Rózsa’s works by opus number, from 1 to 44. (Works without opus numbers are at the end.) Each recorded performance is listed with information regarding Performer(s), Recording Date (where known), Label, Catalog Number, Date of Issue, and Format. The unique disc number is also included, so that referring to the “Discs” table can tell you what else is included on that disc. Reissues of the same performance have been grouped and shaded together in a single block.
