It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Introspective moments....

is important, but I go for a max saturation for a Prokofiev 3.
Szell provides excitement as well as beautifully delineated harmonic structure. He really surprised me here cuz, I didn't think he'll be good for this sort of tune.. This is more emotionally charged than Kondrashin/Janis set. Graffman's articulation is even more laser sharp than Janis. Cool and collected but I hear he's a lot more in tune with the band and he's not afraid to let it go a bit to show Prokofiev's manic side which makes the music even more colourful.
I also think that Szell's fastidious direction works well on Prokofiev's idiosyncratic personality.

I am not surprised if you wouldn't go for Graffman. Very different style from Cliburn. Interestingly, I can hear a bit of graffman in Yuja!
