Thyssens-Valentin studied with Faure
and the latter apparently stated she
and understood and performed his music
better than anyone else. Who am I to
Well, if that is true, the “better than anyone else” would mean anyone else before 1924 - the year he died.
All the preferred versions mentioned here are recorded after 1950 - the bulk being much later. It’s not a question of agreeing or disagreeing, but Of widening one’s views.
Whatever interpretation gives one the deepest pleasure and fulfillment is the best IMO.
