Has anybody ever heard the Brandenburg 5? Brad, have you and can you
describe it? R. Serkin's Marlboro version -- the only one I have heard
on piano-- is a desert island disk for me. I've wanted for years to
hear Gould's but have never seen a copy.

Not to offend the purists (not that I'd guess there are many HIPsters
on this list) but after you've heard the harpichord cadenza on a
piano, you can never go back.
