Let me add Ashkenazy to the mix. This guy recorded everything from Mozart to Prokofiev, and it was all very well received. Not exceptionally flashy, but his interpretations are just, well, really good. Listen to his Mozart concerti recordings. They certainly aren't "originalist," but they are terrific. His Beethoven is great, his Chopin is still widely regarded 35-40 years after it was recorded.
