“then he starts to lose me with his tendency towards slow playing”
That’s interesting. There are bound to be some individual differences among listeners. I myself tend to love slow playing, this might have something to do with my own heart rate-it is very slow( 57/ minute). And slow, mild playing( with the power came from INSIDE the music, not from cracking the keyboard) always makes me feel good, the ecstasy flows into every cell of my body. Biological and genetic factors should be taken into account, but surely music has gone far beyond that, in fact it’s one of the most mysterious thing I’ve ever knew.
Yes, the heroic polonaise. Let’s not forget that no matter how amazing it sounds, first of all it because Chopin wrote it well!
Believe me, no civilized man ever regrets a pleasure, and no uncivilized man ever knows what a pleasure is

Well said! ;)

In addition to my list made three years ago, I must add the legends I have since discovered: Horowitz and Cziffra. Of course, the little I've heard from Michelangeli is quite good, too.

My Vote goes to either Pollini or Perahia.
