The Hewitt Goldbergs are excellent. Apparently recorded in a single take
(not the first, though) with minimal edits.
I'm working on a full review, but I'd say she strikes a fine balance
between the crisp, almost dessicated sound (and approach?) of Gould and
the hyper-Romanticism of a Tatian Nikolayevna.
AND BEFORE ANYONE ASKS: yes, she does takke *all* the repeats. 78 minutes
