Gould later re-recorded both sonatas (see Nos. 40 and 64a). The comparison is shocking, especially in the case of K. 330: the earlier recording is almost five minutes longer! “I think the two versions simply reflect the different pulse rates I had when I played them at the sessions.” Mozart’s Fantasy and Fugue, in contrast, remained unique: Gould never turned to it again.
