Mozart wrote the best series of piano concertos for me.

Faure (especially the Requiem)
J.S. Bach (the Art of the Fugue, the Keyboard works, The Cello Suites,
The Brandenburg concertos, etc.)
Bernstein (the Chichester Psalms is my fave)
Schubert (the Mass in E flat)
Rachmaninoff (the Vespers and Piano Concertos)

Way too hard to narrow this down to five.

Rachmaninov (2nd piano concerto "Adagio sostenuto" is the most beautiful piece of music ever written)
Chopin ("Fantasy Impromptu" - amazing tune)
Bela Bartok (Some really good piano concertos, hard to single anything out)
George Gershwin ("Rhapsody in Blue" is incredible, "Porgy and Bess" was genius)
Gustav Holst (Planets does it for me)
Arvids Zilinskis (underrated Latvian composer, "Elegy in Autumn" very moving)
JS Bach ("Toccota in D": my favourite ever organ piece)
Prokofiev (How long does this list go on?)
Scott Joplin (Apart from his piano rags, I'd reccomend tracking down his opera, "Treemonisha", which was his masterpiece.)
