The masterpiece tell the performer what to do, and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the cocomposer what he ought to have composed.

how is it possible to like both more?

frankly I wouldn't listen to either of these recordings. For me there is only one Schumann concerto and that is Fiorentino's version.
