if you want the ultimate recording of this, try   " alfred brendel the farewell 
concerts "  decca 478 2116. he does it as his last encore, at his last concert. 
( can you imagine a more moving moment, after a career like his ? )

This is awesome, and I don't use that term lightly.  Do you know if this 
recording by Murray Perahia is available on the market?  I've played this about 
twenty times and can't get enough of it.

Many, many thanks,

PS  Forget what I wrote about not buy anything.  (-:
