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

I find it to be such a beautiful piece of music...

I have the Arrau/Haitink version, as well. It's very fine, e.g., Arrau's passage work is cleaner in the (to me) all-important bar 4. But otherwise, I prefer the Dresden orchestra and acoustics.

Also, I purchased Maria-João Pires' recording with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Harding. It didn't grab me, but I plan to give it several more auditions.

Meanwhile, Brendel?Rattle got no shiggy to it IMHO, but I plan to listen to Brendel's other recordings of the 4th. I prefer a not-too-cerebral approach to this work, though.
