RE: Beethoven piano concertos and sonatas

Hi again after a long silence ....but I read everything.
When my opinion of Glenn Gould was at its lowest about 2 years ago I heard
his opus 2 No 2 the slow movement and it knocked the shit out of me. He
plays it unbearably slow and it works. He can certainly be wilfully
contrarian. His WTC was best not too near to my father for that reason.

love to all

In general, I find GG's Beethoven sonata perfs fascinating -- overall, they
are more idiomatic and not as willfully contrarian as his Mozart perfs. What
do you  think?
