RE: [F_minor] Peter in Seattle / Mozart Sonatas

I have attempted to play through all 9 of the Liszt/Beethoven transcriptions and much of the music is unplayable in a normal fashion.  I mean, how can anyone's fingers 'really' do what Liszt has written?  What you end up stumbling through sort of sounds like the symphonies.  The 6'th and 5'th that Glenn did record are very faithful to the ideas he felt Beethoven had in mind.  It is a great tragedy that Gould did not conduct B's symphonies as I do believe he would have brought the same sort of fresh and scintillating insights that Mahler electrified Vienna and Prague's audiences with.  Such remain our fond dreams.
