Beethoven As A Solidly Built House

a: Beethoven by brendel ~
b: a house solidly built inside and out

What: "Brendel's Beethoven is like a house solidly built inside and out, with every nail firmly hammered in. In comparison, Ashkenazy's is like a house that is glamorously painted outside without as much craftsmanship committed inside." This is a comparison of different renderings of Beethoven's piano sonatas.
