Yup, same one.  My first exposure to that Sweelinck piece was hearing it
on the Salzburg recital disc (issued early 1980's by Memoria) and I got
hooked...had to run out and learn it ASAP.  It was a nice piece to take to
a grad school audition.

It's pretty easy to get stuck anywhere on the Brahms intermezzi disc.

And the Beethoven 1st concerto with GG's cadenzas.

And the Scriabin and Berg sonatas.
