Saw yet-to-be-released items on Amazon.fr and Amazon.de recently suggesting
Sony is in the  process of putting together a 60 CD Stravinsky Complete
Original Album set.

The Amazon.fr listing is gone, but the Amazon.de listing is still alive:

http://www.amazon.de/dp/B00TH53056

Does anyone with Sony contacts know anything that can be shared with us
about this set?

Most of the Stravinsky-as-a-performer that has been issued on CD to-date
has used very inferior sources. It would be real nice to hear that Sony is
going the extra mile like they did recently with Richter and give buyers
with audiophile ears something to look forward to. It would also be great
news if the release will resemble last years excellent Pierre Monteux
edition in terms of completeness - all available 78s especially.
