Re: The Yamaha recordings

I have an hypothesis to test.

I think those two Haydn Sonatas Hob. XVI 50 and 51, Gould's first two
adventures in digital recording, made in early October 1980 ,were neither
recorded on the Goldberg Yamaha nor CD 318.  The recording was made months
before Gould bought the Goldberg Yamaha and I'm assuming he wouldn't have
had poor old CD 318 shipped down to NYC for a two day session.

The question is, what piano is that?  A CBS studio piano?

What do the other list members think?
