The version of this that I am familiar with is by Thu Le. I would like to point out some differences that I hear, without trying to say that one is subjectively "better". Thu Le sounds more emotionally driven, employing space and emphasis more spontaneously. While hearing Gary Ryan I recognize the precise rhythm, more mathematically. This is not meant to be an insult by any means. Sometimes I tire quickly of liberal interpretations of disciplined pieces, however I do adore her playing. The performance of Thu Le that I am referring is found here, at 7:59
