I  must admit that I did not realize till just now that I had never heard  
GG play this Beethoven.  I am struck totally dumb by his  interpretation. He 
has thrown out almost all the time scale markings  that Beethoven himself 
would have published and has completed recreated  a different piece.  

I am just amazed at what has  emerged.  I am just listening to the 1'st 
movement now as I type  this.....as usual GG has shown us completely different 
textures that are  buried in the overly familiar music.  He certainly did 
break almost  every rule of interpretive conduct in this recording.  I will 
have  to listen to more and contemplate what the heck GG had in mind.   
Amazing recording...shocking really.
