Tony: Let me get this straight. You were "shown" the book but have not
read it? Well, I read it. It may not be the most exciting writing, but
the information is interesting and not available just from listening
to the recordings. The author thanks his contributors for the time
each took with him personally looking at their approach to the piece.
You are right that listening and forming your own opinions is better,
but this book is a good way to augment that process.

I appreciated your recording of K622 and used it as one of my
reference recordings for an audition. Of course, I *could* have said
that I saw a recording of yours once and thought the music was grouchy
and unkind.
