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

I think the other posters have hit the nail on the head

Fleisher/Szell - yes. Richter/Munch - for sure. (Richter/Kondrashin is also tremendous, but the recording quality can't compete with the RCA Living Stereo.) I also have Zimerman playing and conducting the VPO, which I'd also add to this list.

I'm sure someone will mention one of Martha's recordings too, and I wouldn't argue with that - I particularly like the Bavarian Radio recording with Ozawa and the Concertgebouw recording with Wallberg. Both of these seem more "alive" than the studio recording with Sinopoli - although that DG recording is by no means bad.

I'm afraid I haven't kept up with a lot of the more recent recordings - I sure didn't like what I heard from Pletnev in this concerto.
