It's interesting that everybody seems sure the 2nd note should be stronger. None of the half dozen performances I sampled on YT actually does that !
Everybody plays them either the same or else the second very slightly softer.

Were you listening to performers who are both knowledgeable and recent enough to have access to urtext editions?
I listened to Ronald Brautigam and he definitely does both accents, the first by taking extra time and the second by a marked increase in volume.

I listened to Brendel, Schnabel, Pollini, Kempff, Pollini, Gould, Daniel Shapiro, Dennis Mathews, and Anna Radchenko. I seem to have missed Brautigam's recording. he's an interesting pianist.
