Alkan Solo Concerto played by Claudio Arrau (April Fool's :( )

So, apparently Claudio Arrau recorded the entire Solo Concerto by Alkan in his younger years.

Does anyone have access to or has listened to this recording? I’d like to know more details about it. If anyone knows where this can be accessed (hopefully for free) I would love to know.


EDIT: Just found the link to post the source here.
