RE: GG Goldberg 81 Question

A few months back, I found a SONY GG Edition "import" (I can't remember from
where)containing the entire Salzburg '59 concert (other than some Bach
encores, which are tantalizingly mentioned in the liner notes, but were not
taped). So this concert does exist somewhere in SONY's discography.

Sony has released the Goldbergs from that 8/25/59 concert (and I assume it's
also available in the US...Amazon has it...Sony 52685) but it's coupled with
a live set of three-part Inventions from Moscow.

The rest of the Salzburg recital was pressed at least twice by
Frequenz/Memoria (1986, 1991) but still hasn't been back from Sony:

Sweelinck Fantasia
Schoenberg Suite Op 25
Mozart Sonata #10 in C, K 330

The suite and sonata of course duplicate studio repertoire from Columbia
(twice on the K 330), but are interpreted quite differently.

The notes in the GG Edition Byrd/Gibbons disc (released 6/29/93, including a
1964 CBC performance of the Sweelinck) say the Salzburg version is "due for
release at a later date".  That was almost seven years ago already....
