They are all listed in Ross Laird's 4 volume Brunswick Discography.

The only issued Kempff recordings on Brunswick are 90123 and 90124 
Beethoven E flat Major Sonata from 1927.  They list unissued matrices of 
the E Minor 2nd Movement, C Major, and A Flat Major from 27 and E Minor 
1st movement from 1929.  There are no listed German masters before 1926.
