That cadenza is really wonderful and I too am looking for it. But are you sure it is by Gould? I remember him saying that it was by Hummel. It was very funny: a journalist criticized very harshly Gould's anachronistic cadenza, saying a lot of silly things - but the cadenza was by Hummel, who was born in 1778 and studied with Mozart! :-)

Oggetto: [f_minor] cadenza

does anyone know if the cadenza for the first mmt. of the 24 th mozart concerto ( gould's ) is in print ?  or obtainable ?      it really is quite  interesting. the only other one which  of equal interest is the lipatti ( with karajan ) cadenza for the 21 st.   ( from 1950 or 51 ) . the lipatti might even be a little more inspired.  every other pianist else seems to become overwhelmed by the close proximity to mozart's writing, and then tries to over do it  to compensate for the inadequacy. they  become too filled with themselves,  losing the joy of mozart's writing.  gould and lipatti maintain it , in different ways,  quite nicely.    which is no mean feat !   a rather lofty height !
