Zimerman has a following (I am one of his admirers) and, having been
fortunate enough to hear him play Brahms in Bristol a couple of years
ago, I can see why people might be particularly keen to get these
recordings. Particularly if they are trying to assemble a complete
discography (he hasn't made that many recordings).
I have sometimes obtained recently deleted recordings through "German
Music Express", an Amazon partner company. (Dislaimer: I have no financial
connexion with this company). Failing that, you could cultivate
acqaintances in Japan, where otherwise deleted recordings sometimes
continue to be available.
