That is hilarious, with the M.C. discordant head scramblers just within
ear shot......how strange that I thought of their, em, ah, art.
I think GG played the Clavichord but maybe not recorded on such.  I have
yet to play the Rach 3 through.  I am very keen on the 2'nd with it's
sumptuous and soaring themes, so full of deep feelings.  I also have
played through a few times his first couple of sonatas and they are
mountains to climb each time.  
A line of Leonard Cohen's poetry comes to mind;
"Let's sing another song boys
this one has grown old and bitter"

About a year and a half ago, I had the dubious experience of playing one
of the 2 piano parts for Carmina Burana, with the Erie (Pennsylvania)
Philharmonic.  At the exact same time, Motley Crue was performing
directly across the street at the Erie Civic Center.  Both bands emitted
significant sonic leakage from their respective venues.  Something for
headbangers of every stripe.  

As far as what I personally play-- not much keyboard music after 1750
these days (I did my time with Rach 3 in the 80's).  Much more time is
spent at the clavichord these days.  The piano just sounds generally
thick and oafish to me anymore-- except when GG plays it, of course...

Wonder if GG ever played clavichord?
