I think it has become a historical record,
The Italiano opts for a rather detached and philosophical look at these pieces, whereas they are more characterful and passionate.
Who are you liking? I also have the Julliard (w/Dutilleux/SONY), which I can't complain about, and the New Hungarian on Vox (which I haven't listened to lately,...timings are pretty quick, though,...will have to check).
but, yea, I just like the QI for the warm fuzzy, "historical" feeling I get,.... kinda like a big slab of lasagna on a rainy day!
