In my idea Kempff, Brendel, Pollini, Arrau are among the greatest Beethoven interpreters. Also Serkin is a great one, but he breaths too heavily.


what does breathing heavily have to do with anything?

are you against mouth breathers?

Do you mean Murray Perahia?

Perahia plays Beethoven very nicely. I voted for Arrau, he also deserves more attention for his Chopin recordings. A recording of Beethoven's Sonatas by Goode in which I listened to was lacking in staccato and seemed over-pedaled.

Barenboim does a GREAT job with the Sonatas.

Found a new gem!

Lili Kraus. Anyone ever heard her? I can't comment on all of her Beethoven (though there is a complete set out), but I am most impressed by some of her early sonatas.
