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....
