Apart from agreeing with recordings (even though I prefer Arrau/Giulini), congratulations for your new avatar. Isn't she beautiful?
Yes. Arrau/Giulini is the cerebral choice. Really meant for discriminating listeners.

Arrau/Giulini had the courage to present an interpretation far out of the mainstream, knowing it wouldn't be a commercial success and for this they have my deepmost respect.

It's a fine, dramatic piano concerto, designed to make a "big splash" by the composer.

My favorite performance is the very measured one by Claudio Arrau with the Philharmonia Orchestra directed by Carlo Maria Giulini.
