How Honky Was Mozart?

One for the "Found it Online File":

"As experience grows, some experts may yet answer the vexed question - when Bach played on the Gravicembalo of Silbermann, how many Cents of honk did it have? What tuning did he have in mind when he composed? Similarly, on the Viennese Stein pianos, how honky was the tuning? And how honky was Mozart himself, in his thoughts and in his dreams? How honky was Scott Joplin? "
