Ok I understand. Critics often use complicate words to just say "is superficial" or "mannered", that way they can differ each other. From what I heard in your example, it is very mannered, in the sense that the rhythm is too often distorted then the touch is voluntarily stung and shortened, to make it sound different from what we usually know. Sometimes it is fresh and intriguing (Glenn Gould, Goulda), other times it looks like is done just for the sake of proposing something unusual. Of course, this also is a rhetorical (superficial) judgment as I only heard a small example, a more accurate review should be done when you hear at least 10-15 sonatas so you see clearly what is this musician vision on the whole range of Beethoven ways of expression.

I think that's the first time I see a list including both interprets I adore and others I can't stomach. On Beethoven I like Schnabel a lot but possibly I prefer Aldo Ciccolini which I don't see in your list.

I don't adore all of them either but I like having and comparing different approaches, I don't think any of them are delete worthy terrible. My favorites are Kempff, Annie Fischer and Kovachevich. Rubenstein is Rubenstein but he's not among my favorites when it comes to the sonatas, except maybe Appassionata's third movement. Gulda is also interesting but I prefer him on Mozart. Fischer's Moonlight third is like lightning strike, I never thought I would prefer a version to my childhood's Kempff but she's getting there. Badura-Skoda's set is interesting in another way because he uses period instruments and the sound from those pianos are really different, so, you think like "so that's how they heard it in the late 1700's.  

Downloading Ciccolini now.
you guys are after some sort of systemized system - tsar

Legendary Hero

Shifting to another tone, I recommend a German Neo-Medival group called Corvus Corax.

They were around for quite some time (since last centuries late 80's) and are still playing. It's quite a numerous group that plays authentic instruments and creates medival music with their own twist. They also have spectacular concerts.

Their musical tones are vast, earlier creations present Central and Western Medieval Europe inspired tunes: some are traditional, lively and climatic pieces like In Taberna or Totentanz (don't mind the name ), and others more epic with choruses (for ex Canticas) like
Hymnus Cantica, Mille Ani Passi Sunt or Sol Solo.

In recent years they tried some Nordic/Celtic themes and they've also shown their incredible talent with albums Sverker [2011] and Gimlie [2013]. Some great examples of tunes from those albums are Gjallarhorni, Ragnarok, Derdriu or Crenaid Brain.

If you like this kind of music check more of their albums, you won't be dissapointed.

PS: Fun fact - they've created the first version of the Game of Thrones famous intro theme for the pilot episode (and even played as ministrels in it), but ultimately the episode was heavily changed into first episode of the series and they were removed...
