Did he record the complete cycle? Last time I was looking for it on spotify I coulnd't find it
Yes. The first two books and the first étude from the third book ("White on White") are in the the third disc of Sony's György Ligeti Edition - Works for Piano (Etudes, Musica Ricercata).
The disc was recorded in 1997, so Ligeti was still composing the third book at that time. He finished it in 2001.
Aimard recorded the rest of the third book (three remaining études) in the disc African Rhythms: Ligeti - Reich, which also contains pieces by Reich and traditional music of the Aka Pygmies from Africa (which were an influence for Ligeti when composing the études).
