Thanks for that link. I may have heard this one before. I have had no luck finding any uploaded 3'rd mvt of the Appassionata by Gould. The 1'st and 2'nd movements were shocking to me and I'm pretty used to exaggerated GG. These sounded like his Mozart with deliberately outrageous tempos, designed to get people screaming at the cd machine.

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.
