Hi, I'd like to know who's the best at playing beethoven and the best at playing schubert.

You know, whose interpretation is, in your opinion, closest to what they were thinking when they composed (sp?).

In other words who understands their music the best

Piano concerti- Wilhelm Kempff, Arthur Rubinstein, Artur Schnabel
Piano sonatas- Wilhelm Kempff, Artur Schnabel, Claudio Arrau and get your hands on as much as Solomon you can

Bagatelles- Alfred Brendel, Artur Schnabel
Variations- Alfred Brendel, Schnabel (Diabelli vars)
Violin sonatas- Kempff with Menuhin, Rubinstein with Heifetz
Cello sonatas- Kempff with Fournier, Schnabel with some one i don't remember
Misc.- Schnabel, Kempff, Brendel
Choral fantasy- Barenboim, Brendel
Triple concerto- Arrau
Trios- Kempff, Szyring and fournier

Schubert:

piano sonatas- Kempff, Brendel, Schnabel, Fischer
moment musicaux- Kempff
Impromptus- Fischer (Edwin), Schnabel, Kempff
Lieder- Fischer, Brendel with Fischer Dieskau

Why doesn't anyone aknowledge Georges Pludermacher? I own a collection of the 32 piano sonatas played by Arrau and I like them a lot, but I like Pludermacher best! (and I can't find his recordings on CD anywhere!!! I can only watch him on TV (but I usually tune in at the middle of a sonata))
