    If you look carefully, all four of the VLL are listed, but they're spread out on the CD. A strange decision.

    There have been previous recordings of the VLL with piano - Welitsch and Bonney.

    Thank you Fritz Kobus!
    I finally figured it out: I found the recording on Spotify and as you said it is all piano plus voice. The Four Last songs are included though, but played on piano instead of an orchestra. I never heard them like that before. I think I'm going to like it as an alternative the usual orchestral version.

    Does anyone know if this version for piano and voice was how Strauss originally conceived of them - or are they later arrangements?

    Thanks! That must have taken quite a lot of effort to go through those sets and compile all that information. I don't suppose you ever did a comparison of the two big Rachmaninoff sets.
