Yes, well played. It really gets him sweating, too: how hot was it in
there with the lights and that coat? I think it's kind of funny how GG

I put on GG's later recording of this piece after watching the
television version. It's much slower, taking two minutes longer. What
a difference! I like the drive of that televised performance better.
It's not really "late" Beethoven; B was only 31 when it was published.
Same year as the so-called "Moonlight" and a bunch of other sonatas.

movement to die for and I've never heard it more super charged and
In a word "wow"
