My thoughts exactly and I have to agree the in Pachebel Canon is wonderful.

Along with Debussy (the piano preludes are great) try also Poulenc.

John Ireland London Pieces are favourites of mine to play as well. Enchanting and image provoking.

Here are a few nice pieces that aren't too hard ( I don't know your level)

"Barcarolle In G Minor" (June) from THe Seasons by Tchaikovsky

"Sicilienne" - Faure (gotta love the French composers)

Sicilienne was originally written for Flute, but if you can find a rendition for piano(took me a little while to track down), it's so beautiful and well worth the effort.

"Adagio For Strings" by Samuel Barber

This piece is so amazing. It breaks my heart everytime I hear it. It's so simple-looking on paper, and yet it's packed with so much emotion. Geez, I think i'm going to go listen to it xD

Hopefully some of these will toot your fancy. ^^

Chopin Etudes...if you like to listen to virtuosic stuff.
Chopin Scherzo No. 3 - Martha Argerich recording is THE BEST.

If you wanna hear some new music...i've written some stuff...I'd LOVe for people to comment on it and let me know what they think! I have a piece for Two pianos and strg quartet...also a piece for Piano and flute...etc

The End of Dreams is also a good one. It is not so famous now but i think it will be in the future.

I always like the piano versions of the Hungarian Rhapsodies. Then there's Mozart's "Sonata for Piano No.11 in A Major," and Tchaikovsky's "Piano Concerto No.1" but that one really needs an orchestra to back it up.

Rachmaninoff. This guy is seriously amazing. Look for the album "a window in time".

Amy Beach makes some beautiful piano songs. Also, if you're up for a challenge, try either a Grieg sonata, Mozart concerto (with a piano cadenza), or MacDowell, well, anything MacDowell really =D.

I know this may not be what you are looking for, but Game soundtracks own this one.

Almost all of the Final Fantasy songs have been arranged for piano, and there are a number of GREAT ones. Jeremy Soule is another excellent composer for piano. If you are looking for classical, then Chopin is the destination you will arrive at.

FF6 : Enchanted forest - piano collection would be a start on the FF series.
Oh and I forgot to mention Xenogears OST, that stuff is crazy beautiful. Just try to forget it is a game soundtrack...
