Funny you should ask that...I was just wondering if he recorded "Prelude,
Fugue and Allegro in E-flat" BWV 998.  Anyone got a yay or nay on this one?

        I go out into the hall to knock in a nail.  On my way there, I
decide I would rather go out.  I obey the impulse, get into a train, come
to a railway station, go on travelling and finally end up - in America!
That is modulation!

adrenaline but is, rather, the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of
wonder and serenity."
