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.

I'd prefer Zimerman and Karajan because there is Zimerman and karajan.

I think the former brings out more of Schumann's essence, than the latter, which shows more personal interpretation.

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.
